Here’s What’s Going On: End Of Q2


In the spirit of transparency and direct communication with you, our loyal readers, I bring you the End of Q2 Here’s What’s Going On hopefully-quarterly-but-most-likely-semi-annually Report. The first one of these I did back in January was well received by you guys. You had questions about what was happening within our media department so the time was right to open the lines of communication and explain the situation behind the curtain.

I asked if you wanted a HWGO periodically and the overwhelming consensus was an affirmative. It’s also really great timing because were are in the beginning stages of yet another change in direction that is designed to bring the TFM brand to greater heights, with better content. It’s a change I know you all are going to like.

We are giving it back to you, the people.

We are focused more than ever on upholding and improving the authenticity of the TFM brand, which is the unfettered voice of the American college student. We have a clear vision for what it can become and how authentic we know it can be. We cover some popular national news stories, which don’t really need commentary from Joe College Student to be effective, but, as I explained in the January edition, we strive to keep the brand uniquely college. For college students, from college students.

We have a team of talented freelance writers from all over the country who write for us on a daily basis, many of whom have recently joined our team and I’m very excited about. We’re not finished adding people, either. These guys are the ones who are able to carry the voice of TFM more effectively than Dan, Jared, or I can. Because they are either in college or have just graduated. They know what’s going on around campus, what the kids are into, and the trends that arise in the college culture. We, on the other hand, spend 40+ hours a week inside the walls of Grandex Headquarters.

TFM first began as a website to host funny one-liners and photos that were 100% generated and submitted by you all. By posting hilarious quips and absurd photos that defined the hilarious life of a college student, TFM rapidly gained popularity and mass appeal with a supplemental Twitter feed. That was TFM, the OG edition. We have since added editorials and videos series.

The plan, which I mentioned is still in phase one, is to turn the TFM content over to those who helped shape and build this brand from the beginning.

We have a lot of work to do and details to sort out, but we are committed to building out a network of freelance writers positioned around the country that will represent all of TFM’s content, minus a few staples that we will still handle. Fail Friday, Babe of the Day, and Rush Boobs will all continue to be posted by us in-house guys, for example. Everything you enjoy about the site will remain, and the parts of it you’ve told us you enjoy the most, you’ll be seeing a lot more of. Much like the content on the TFM Instagram page is comprised solely of user generated pictures and videos, the content on the site will be from you all, too.

We plan to have writers representing each region of the country, maybe at the conference level, who will have eyes and ears on what’s happening there. They will own their regions, and they will report on their regions. They will provide news, commentary, and opinions that will be unlike any publication out there.

Think of the future of the site as the rogue, unfiltered publication of the American college student.

Once we have a team of trusted writers representing all regions, it’ll be time to scale. We will expect them to build out their own networks of writers and personalities. The heads of each region, who I’m unofficially calling “Regional Editors,” will recruit a team to churn out on-brand content that represents them, their region, and TFM. And you, truthfully.

As for us, we’ll still be here editing, posting the content you’re used to seeing, and maintaining quality control of the content and brand. Quality control will be a huge focus of ours during this process. Standards will be as high or higher than it’s ever been, and our content will be unique. However, our main creative focus will move over to PGP, a brand that is absolutely on fire right now.

We are more excited about the future of TFM than we have been at any point. The end game is a product that you all are going to enjoy more than you ever have before.

It’s now time to get to work.

P.S. If you are interested in joining our writing team and becoming part of the movement to take over the internet, impress me.

        What if we were to turn the comments section of wall posts into a “forum”? The advertisers don’t have to know

      Why can’t you just have the BOTD sign a disclaimer or something of that nature and allow comments on all?

        Girls have asked to have their stuff take down after seeing comments. By letting them choose whether to ha e comments or not, they are able to recruit better talent for our viewing pleasure.

        They’re not that special. The talent is everywhere and more turn 18 daily. Plus, the repeats are still appreciated. And this nonsense is killing #NameGags and quality commenting. Back to Dorno, make Dan post a monthly top 5 or a seasonal top 5. You’ll get the views and you know it.

        Be that as it may, it’s the difference between hotter girls or not. Maybe there is an aspect reputation too. If word got around the (I dunno do they hot a got girls Instagram council they meet at?) that TFM isn’t really a place worth seeking the approval of, then what?
        Right now these specimens believe that the frat vote is one worth going for. Perhaps that consensus would go away if they came to think that everyone in this group was actually like some of the more colorful commenters words.

        Just spit balling here.

      Dillon, couple questions. 1) Can you fire Wally? 2) What happened to Commenter and Bad Commenter of the Week? 3) Why can’t you throw a football farther than me?

        1) Can I? Yes. Will I? No.
        2) We are all crazy busy and having to prioritize things. Those are currently on the back burner.
        3) I can.

      Where are your Fail Friday Wall submissions coming from? Is someone actually reviewing weekly submissions (and none have made it to the wall in 5 months)? Are you going through archived submissions? Are you making them up? Are you phasing out the wall?

      Why am I still a virgin? And can you do anything about that brain-damaged loser who pretends to be me?

        You literally just called yourself brain damaged considering you’re pretending to be me. Smart move, Fratty Mcfratfrat. Glad you can admit that your broke ass has autism.

        I like refreshing my comments because I can just imagine you scrambling to log into your 6 other accounts to give you up votes and down vote mine hahahaha.

        Some of you are probably wondering why I keep replying to my own comments. It is a habit I developed in childhood, when I would spend hours in my “room,” the cardboard box behind the garage that my crack-whore mother made me sleep in, talking to myself and carrying on conversations with my friends: the broken cinder block, the discarded tire iron, and my favorite, the used condom that someone tossed from a passing car. When I was 16, my mother gathered up my friends and tossed them into a dumpster. But I still long for the warm embrace of Cinder Block, the girl that I had hoped to someday marry.

        And speaking of welfare and dancing, my mother was finally able to get off welfare by dancing in strip joints. Not the upscale clubs, but the places you see along the interstate near truck stops. And she works the lunchtime shift, so you know she is a Classy Lady. I’m sure you’ve met her. She’s the one who says things like, “How ’bout a few more dances, sweetie, my son needs a new laptop for school.”

      Dorno is this your version of a quarterly report? Where are your earnings and projections? How can I become an investor in Grandex?

      Can you try to find real college girls for BOTD and not Instagram models that also turn up on BroBible, The Chive, etc and attend a few classes at some community college we’ve never heard of?

      How is Mia Khalifa in the sack, 1-10? How does it feel to go boldly where many men have came before?

    And is the wall going to become active again or what is the situation it just sits there?

      He used to be neighbors with some kid that he would constantly bring up because they have a little beef or something.

        While I would like to hear from the man himself tell the whole story and the truth, is there any evidence to support this theory?

        Not saying you should but all his old articles which contain mention of said kid are still on this site. So technically yes.

        I was wondering whether we were going to do a golf tournament. There are a few courses in Tennessee I’d like to check out.

    Is TFM’s own Official Chicago Correspondent Jeff Borislow getting to keep his position?

    You guys should make a new Fratfellas video, that stuff is weirdly inspirational. On a side note, keep up the good job Cheverere.
