Can we restructure the forum? (again)

Post by pulsoc » Tue Jul 11, 2006 4:47 pm

How about a music forum (with questions about Live, promotion of new tracks and mixes, and promotion of events), and an OT forum.

Nobody checks the promotion forums! And this OT shit is out of hand.

It's cool dawg, when the beta testing for Live 6 drops all this OT shit will be a thing of the past

I've noticed a trend over the last couple years - the board get's really fucked up right before a major release

I believe it, but that is just one component to my complaint.

Anyway, I will wait and see.

But we do have a "Music" forum for our beats and I think that gets a fair amount of traffick

and the Local forum gets some action

I think people are more interested in the drama and excitement provided by reading two grown 30 something year old out of shape men's arguments as to whether Bush is a Nazi or not

but I think the Abe's gave us what we wanted and for that I am happy

How about a forum where you have to actually have a registered copy of the product - I bet it would cut down on some of the garbage - like what the propellerhead people did

Registered users may or may not have more respect for other users if they knew they paid to be in the club and it might cut down on insults, needs to be right and the general "I'm better than you attitude"

Then the general forum can just be a wasteland of eronneous facts, pictures of dead babies and racial content only the KKK would smile at

just an idea

personally i like this forum because it is not all tech-related. It is a forum for users of Live, who are mostly interesting and creative people.
It would be boring if it was just all about Live. I pick up some tips and tricks here, a plug-in there, talk about World War three and hear confessionals of people's poor hygeine habits, their travel stories, the things they like in addition to using Live....etc etc etc whatever...it's universal. Links to interesting websites and articles I would otherwise probably not find, and i usually find it interesting because most Live users seem to be relatively like-minded in some respects...

Maybe we should start a whining forum, so you can complain about everything that makes your life inconvenient, and WE wouldnt have to read it.

You're a dirty old man, dirty dirty dirty

Please read..."Hello, are you Tony?"

CARTMAN
I've outgrown all my friends. I need
to meet more mature people, Clyde Frog.
Oh, great idea, Clyde Frog! I can
meet new friends on the Internet! Here's
a chat room: "Men Who Like Young Boys"
That's perfect. Hi everybody! I am
a young boy seeking an older male for
good times. I am eight years old and
would li- Wow! Look at all these guys
who wanna be my friend!
I'll pick... Tony316.
Hi Tony. "So what are you into?"
Oh, you know, the usual stuff. Smiley-face.
"Kewl. Wanna get together? Smiley-face?"
Sure, Tony! That would be... kewl. Winking,
smiley, face
. "Meet me at Mel's Buffet
restaurant tomorrow morning." Sounds
good. See you then! Clown hat, curly
hair, smiley-face
. You see that, Clyde
Frog? Tomorrow I'm gonna meet my first
mature friend!

[Mel's Buffet, next day. Cartman enters and approaches a man
seated alone in a booth.]

CARTMAN
Hi, are you Tony?

TONY
Yeah. You're -Eric?

CARTMAN
Yeah!

TONY
I brought you some candy.

CARTMAN
Wow, cool!

TONY
And some books on Kama Sutra.

CARTMAN
Neato! Having older friends kicks ass,
uh! You see, I've, I've really been
having a tough time. I've kind of matured
faster than my other friends ; we don't
really relate anymore, and, and uh,
alright uh, all my friends seem so childish
now.

TONY
Yahahahah like having your back rubbed?


CARTMAN
Heh, yeah! That feels real nice! Thanks.


AGENT
Hold it right there, scumbag!

TONY
Huh?

CARTMAN
Huh?

AGENT
We monitored your little online chat.
Now you're coming with us!

TONY
No!

CARTMAN
What the hell just happened?
