Dankmen: Cancelled

Yesterday we announced the launch of our Dankmen NFTs, which awarded owners with an exclusive pentagon profile picture border. Unfortunately, everyone immediately STOLE the Dankmen and uploaded them as their own profile pictures, making them worthless. As a result, we’ve canceled the Dankmen project.

We’re leaving the pentagon borders in place for Dankmen profile pictures this weekend but on Monday we’ll be announcing something new, thanks to the “Plan B” we prepared when this system was built.


I'd like to give a huge thanks to @Potatoman for assembling the Dankman Army and illustrating our promo banner and site skin for the event. Thank you @DaemonPlus, @Joe-Mega, @LobsterMango, @PhantomArcade and @RGPAnims for creating individual Dankmen!


We also have a bunch of fan-made Dankmen (Fankmen?) in the Art Portal, have a look!


We’ll be leaving the Dankmen site skin up for the weekend but I’ve swapped the banner back to promoting the Voice Acting Contest, which kicked off yesterday. The deadline to enter Round 1 is April 15th!


Here’s @Potatoman’s beautiful Dankmen banner, for the historical archive:

What a shame. But as people say, all good things come to an end!


And so do all bad things like eneftees, come to think of it.


Wait, does that mean every single good and bad thing comes to an end? if so, where does that leave neutral things? Do those all come to an end as well? DOES ANYTHING LAST?

oh yeah so dankmen have been canceled “because people stole them” and not because i caught tom fulp discriminating? i see you tom covering up your own ass and making excuses when you’ve been called out for f—king up… shame i didn’t say “cancel dankmen” because that would’ve made the title of this post even better, oh well #cancel dankmen anyway lmao


Jokes aside, I’m interested to hear what this plan B is. Sounds like we’re getting a genuine gift after this is done!

That was fun. Fingers crossed it becomes a feature to put some shapes around your PFP!

I genuinely still cannot tell whether this is an April Fools' Joke or not

What a shame this incredible endeavor had to be called off. The real boatloads of money were the friends we made along the way.


Also, something new on Monday? I'll try to remember.

Much as I wanted to jump in on this background border business, I knew that doing so would mean having to part with the unequal profile & icon picture. That's something money can't buy.

For everything else, there's Mastercard.
