The smilies suck now.

And it always looks like I'm the ONLY person even online... Is that accurate? Doesn't seem to be.

Busy, mainly, but it doesn't seem as active around here :dunno: I lurk and scan, but not a lot to say. Too little drama - we must be getting old and just don't give a shit anymore :lol:

I'm sure it will pick up a bit again come festie season.

With the new board came what seemed to be a slowing of things here...:undecided:

Clear lack of diverse interaction on this board in the last year. I have no idea where the general apathy for everything kicked in over here. Really odd.

Boardies on the whole seemed to be doing a lot more things when I fist joined here. There were BBQ's, gatherings, and interactions between bpardies in many different threads.

Something changed. Less show roll calls, seems like less overall interest in music altogether. Was there a backlash over something?

I notice that people are just less interactive in general.

For me, it's simply because I've been terribly busy at work. I find that if I just pop in here while at the office I usually wind up staying too long. Sometimes that's okay, but lately I've been needing every minute I can get.

i know that most of my favorite boardies who arent here anymore are slaves to facebook now :plain:
seems its easier to do roll calls and shit there than here
even HQ does its announcements there first then maybe here, but usually an active boardie who does FB and the boards lets us non-FBers know...
i am kinda offended by that, myself...:dunno:

we were here loooooong before lookatmyFacebook :sad:

oh well, signs of the times

oh, and this board isnt as 'friendly'
i feel alone all the time cuz the "who is online" feature always just says me
no one wants to hang out talking in an empty room :sad:

if someone could fix that feature, i would love it
cuz i KNOW its not only me online all the time
but when i asked about it in the message board thread i was told i was mistaken
but since its not only me noticing it, perhaps i wasnt? :huh:

anyway
its different now
*hmmpf*

Keep the political threads in this forum and activity will pick up.

Myself, the last year or so has been incredibly busy with a new house and holding down a couple of jobs. The board ain't what it used to be, that's for sure.

there are definitely a bunch of boardies who usually had something interstesting or funny to say that don't come around here anymore...that sucks too

Something's defintely changed. I've already come to grips that this place may be fading out for me. I'm not leaving, just saying I notice I don't burn to come here anymore.
Why maybe?

1. Busy with work
2. Busy with family
3. long timers gone (I started coming here in 99, not many of us left, and YES it was diffferent then)
4. Majority of thread topics not doing it for me
5. Whats left feels anti-septic

Why I do come back occassionaly...

1. still care deeply for some of the folks here
2. Facebook can kiss my ass.

Mainly, I have been pretty busy at work, which is when I mainly post. When I'm not at work, I've been also been working on some music editing jobs.

I'm also not a huge fan of the new board layout. But besides that, and not having the free time to post, a lot of the topics discussed these days just don't interest me.

As previously mentioned in the the thread though, I'm sure my interest will pick up as we get closer to the festival.

My reasonings were Umelt Broke Up and The Mods moving threads. Those used to be two guaranteed drama topics. Now, nothing. Guess this board jumped off a pier in rural Ireland.

It's been slow for years...

I think "that crowd" just grew out of it. That, and Facebook.

Keep the political threads in this forum and activity will pick up. Myself, the last year or so has been incredibly busy with a new house and holding down a couple of jobs. The board ain't what it used to be, that's for sure.


Ain't that the truth!

been busier than usual at work the last few weeks/months. it does seem slower around here, but i'm sure i contribute to that a lil bit...anytime i think to start a thread or post something i'm like, ah fuck it no one cares anyway :funny1: there are definitely a bunch of boardies who usually had something interstesting or funny to say that don't come around here anymore...that sucks too


Remember when Nicole would start 10,000 threads a day? Not anymore. :(
Remember when L&S was more popular than the Family board? That stopped at least six or seven years ago.

oh and DHJ sucks


Now we're getting to the bottom of it....



For me, I've started my "career" since joining back in 2004. I have a demanding job that occupies at least 10 hours of my day, often six days a week. My free time is spent with my girlfriend or running/cycling. A big part of it is that I'm disinterested in a lot of new music that's out there, and spend less time going to shows and seeking out new music to listen to. There are a lot less people here, far less people I "know in real life", and less boardie gatherings overall.
