I use TK Media Center as a scratchpad for the music project I'm working on. The link mechanisms make it easy to keep store and catalog an awesome library of videos. Same with "Badlands Pic Of The Day". I thank Menty for that.Troll Kingdom was founded by disgruntled TrekBBSers who had either been permabanned or had had enough of the perceived censorship of fringe individuals / behaviors.
In the halcyon days, it was fairly active with some regular TrekBBSers - including some mods - crossing the line and participating.
Troll Kingdom peaked around the mid 2000s. As the wild west days of TrekBBS waned, interest in TK started to dry up. Other boards popped up in this tumultuous period, with WordForge being the most prominent (populated by similarly disgruntled TrekBBSers, irked by over modding).
The key difference between WF and TK is that WF branded itself on more than "fuck other boards" and is still fairly active. TK, on the other hand, continued to decline, with the majority of "talent" moving on to greener pastures. Eventually, TK was held up by only a handful of faithful (as far as any meaningful content goes). Unfortunately, the rest devolved to pure spam and empty attention whoring to the scant few remaining.
True TK / Pure TK was as a supporting character in the TrekBBS soap operas of the early-mid 2000s. Those days are a lifetime ago.
It is fascinating that it still exists, as anyone who contributes meaningfully undoubtedly has other outlets in which to do so. Sentiment would seem to be the obvious answer.

Awww, yer gonna make me all feelsy. Funning aside, it's good for people to have somebody to butt heads with. If nobody offers a contrary viewpoint, the place would be "comfortable" -- but it would also be fucking boring.I just enjoy hanging with Castle and Lox and Char not to mention trolling the shit out of Blackfoot Sybil.
Whatever happens if you're still part of it here, I'll be leaving. I have accounts elsewhere and am hoping Menty figures it out.
Either way, we are going to lose contact for good, very shortly.
You forgot me.So if TrollKingom was to end our relationship is over? Over, over? Really over? Do me a favor Venooker. Have the active members take me offa ignore before Mentalist pull the plug. Bring Conchaga, Pickle, Dirk, Sarek, Neil, Donavan, Hunter, Ed and Cory among others back for old time sake.Its only fair that you and I go out with a BANG!.
No you dumb bastard, I bump the threads you view incessantly. Not the ones to pad your view count. Who looks at obscure threads about you every day?So that is why you're bumping my old threads? Leaving TK and making me famous as you move along to greener pastors. Nice move Venooker! Its a move you and I'll regret, but do what you have too. I'm going to miss you when TK is done.
Poor dumb black bastard, seems like you get ignored and deleted (in addition to hated) everywhere you post. The people that know you IRL say the same thing. You lie all the time and can't be trusted when you're around them. Maybe after 20 years of this you should start to get a clue. Maybe you will. I don't care whether you do or not any more. We're done.
