Welcome to the official LiveLeak blog. In here we'll be posting about developments, issues, and anything else related to the site.

The fine art of face palming.

Each day I receive several mails or messages from utterly irate members. They normally revolve around the same subjects and have done for 10 years. I thought it couldn't hurt, although it probably won't help either, to put these "FMO" (Frequently Made Outbursts) up here so maybe you could check through them before bursting into my messages with white foam in the corners of your mouth. Thanks.

Outburst I got an infraction for nothing / why don't you tell me what I got an infraction for? **Insert random insult which is obviously the best way of getting sincere support**

Answer: If you received an infraction then chances are it's because you made a comment which was then reported and reviewed by a moderator. At that point your comment was most likely deemed to be against our rules and an infraction was given. I agree, we should tell show you what the comment was and we'll include that on the next update but how about - and I know this is totally out of left field here - you read the rules then before you submit a comment you have a little think about it? Also, it's just an infraction, it shouldn't affect your life too greatly.

Outburst: Your features are shit / childish / not what I like. What kind of retard do you have choosing those features? No wonder this site is going to shit **Insert random insult**

Answer: We choose features on various criteria. Some news based some based on viral potential. It costs a LOT of money to keep LL online and one way of helping out is by getting more people to the site hence the variety of media on the front page. I realise not all the media might be to your tastes and I also realise that despite there being a title AND description it still might come as a surprise to you but you can always click away from that page and find something you like. We love the fact you use the site but it isn't yours. We try to appeal to a wider user base out of necessity. As for the "what retard do you have choosing those features?", a crack team of retards. The cream of the crop.

Outburst: You give me an infraction for **Insert whatever racial slur this person inevitably used** but you have beheadings on your site. You're a fucking hypocrite and I demand...DEMAND...you remove my infraction.

Answer: It's never good to use words you don't understand. I'm sure you read "hypocrite" once and thought you had a handle on the meaning but I'm afraid that isn't the case. Our rules protect the site. Not people, not our delicate little sensibilities, not anyone in particular, just our site. If the only way you can communicate is by breaking our rules why not try furthering your education or hanging out on sites with other single cell organisms who share your views? I just want you to be happy after all.

Outburst: If you don't remove my infraction / unban me / let me rule the universe I will hack LiveLeak / reveal your personal information / come round and kill you and your family.

Answer: Dick.

Outburst: You only banned / infracted me because you happen to support the polar opposite of what I do or you're after me personally because of my amazing insight and commentary.

Answer: We probably don't know who you are. You're probably not that brilliant. The CIA don't want to spy on you either so stop using that shitty proxy.

Outburst: Your mods hacked me. I had an argument with someone who I'm sure is an admin here and the next day they found me on Facebook after I gave out my personal info and now they have pictures of my pets and dinner. The admin is called Shammy.

Answer: I highly doubt our mods hacked anyone, I highly doubt you've ever spoken to one of our mods, if you're being trolled outside of LL there's not really much I can do about it unless it's brought back here. Most of our mods aren't even members these days, too much speculation and nightmares if they were "outed". The mods are here to help the site, attacking members wouldn't exactly help and we'd see it before too long.

I'll add more to these as they come up but you get the drift. If you're upset by something here on LL just take a deep breath, remember it doesn't particularly affect your life, and get in touch if it still all seems confusing. Remember though, act like a dick and I will too. It's all about the lulz.

Hi all,

I'm taking an unprecedented 6 days off work this year so I wanted to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and all team to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.

All the very best




Hayden & all the team on LL.




Oh, and before the "I don't celebrate christmas" or "I'm a Jedi" folks chime in, have a good time whatever you're doing :)

It's all about communication!

Entry Added: Oct-11-2015 By: LL_Hayden

As many of you might already know I try to make myself as available as possible to members. This isn't a PR thing, I genuinely think of myself as being a part of the site more than above it or the members. I dig talking to most of you.

If my chat is showing green and I'm sat at the PC I'll invariably answer you and chew the fat. After all, I'm not some kind of venture capital suit or student filling in time doing customer service. I'm just...well...me. The benefits of this approach are that I get to chat with people I'd never otherwise "meet" and I can often help out with issues before they become drama fueled forrest fires tearing through the LiveLeakers section resulting in yet another Facebook group bitching about LL and me without ever talking to me. I did say "sometimes".

The down side is people seem to think communication can be improved by being an arsehole with me. These people also have a habit of getting all butthurt when I don't act like an online customer service representative from India and instead act like a dick myself in return. The deal's pretty simple, don't be a dick with me and I won't be an egotistical, sarcastic, prick with you.

If something's wrong or you have a question I'll listen and most likely look into it. You don't need to add "Or I'll go to the police" or "I'll take your site down" or even "X is a mod and I know they have it in for me because it's a conspiracy" (I had one of the latter just this morning).

Just tell me what your issue is and if it's only something I can deal with then I'll deal with it. I'm not asking you to kiss ass (that's not cool!) just treat me as you'd like to be treated. If you'd like to be treated like a child with a brain malfunction I guess that's cool as well. Just don't bitch about it.

I also come on here to watch videos and hang out with people. I don't mind people interrupting with genuine issues but "hey asshole" isn't the way to start any conversation where you expect positive results.

And yes, there is a way to complain about me. Just send a private message via liveleak.com/c/LL_Hayden and I'll get back to you a.s.a.p.
