demotivalo.net was the most popular and maybe the first Hungarian website for user-created demotivational posters. Starting in 2010, it quickly gained popularity, and soon had 200,000 followers on Facebook. We can say it was the most popular and original community site of its kind. However, staff has left the site abandoned after some years and the future of the site became quite uncertain.

Content

The name of the site refers to demotivational posters – opposite of well-known motivational posters. However, other "genres", like "you're doing it wrong", "college version" and other funny ones are also welcome, if they suit the picture-title-line scheme. Users upload a picture, write the belonging lines, and post them. Administrators check if they are OK, and then send them to the "waiting hall" or vote page, and if they earn a good rating, they go to the hot page.

From the comments, we can see a good community formed, sometimes having harsh debates on sensitive topics.

As of December 2014, there are ~12,500 posts on the hot pages, not counting the ones that didn't succeed from the vote pages and were cleared from there but remained in the users' profiles.

Vital signs

Technical issues

The site used to have availability problems throwing 502 errors, but that went away. There are some redirects that disable some, earlier working, functions of the site, but there are no more availability problems. However, login system went down for like a month because of domain expiry, and the sister sites (see below) are gone.

Administrator activity

Since early 2013, staff keeps disappearing for long periods and comes back for some weeks only. Without their presence the site doesn't provide new content. As of May 2016, the last time they appeared was in February 2016. Naturally, this ignorance caused the community to quickly decompose and visitors to go away.

Financial status

A natural person is named as the maintainer of the site, so no traceable financial status information available. There are only a few ads on the site.

Sister sites

Site owners, riding the popularity of demotivalo.net, started some other sites similar in structure, but of other genres.

Archives

The Wayback Machine – or other automated tools – can't make a proper archive, because switching between pages is implemented with a Javascript tool (Paginator) which generates the links to further pages only in the browser.

user:bzc6p made a panic grab of demotivalo.net and its still available sister sites in July–November 2014, including everything, also those, automatically not reachable pages and their contents.
