posticon Is there anybody out there?


The forum has been kinda slow lately. It used to be a lot of folks hangin' out here, but now...?

Where's everyone? emoticon

Maybe things will change when Purple release their new album, hopefully, next year?

I think may people who have posted in the past nowdays only read the forum, or parts of it. I base that argument on the number of views topics get.

While I have never been a prolific poster, I do read a lot of the threads. However, I don't post much, because it always ends up rehashing the same arguments over and over again. The debates get tiring.

I notice the same thing too!

I think maybe it's the economy and the world crisis these days. People just have some serious stuff on their minds, and either don't have time, or are too scared to worry about the forums, or just feel guilty playing around here, when there's real problems in the outside world.

To me, taking time on the forums is no different than sitting and blowing 3 hours watching Monday Night Football. It's fun, it's relaxing, and who cares if other people think I'm wasting my [sign in to see URL] it may be one explanation.

Explanation 2-- would be that maybe the internet is not as fresh and fun and as much of a "gag", "novelty" item as it once was.

I remember when I first got internet service in 2003, I was enamoured with how I could email pictures of God knows what to people halfway around the world. It wasn't necessarily because I cared that much about the social value of the contact-- just it was fun to play around and say I could do it.

I'd go on traffic cams and be amazed at watching cars drive through intersections in Germany 3/8th's of a world away from me-- in real streaming time!

Now a few years later, I guess some of that cute stuff is passae. Wish it wasn't, but it comes to be that way.

Maybe for some, the forum has become the same. For some, it's a source of social commradery, and I do think some real valuable relationships have struck-up here. But at the same time, some real verbal fights have started here too, so some people have cashed out their chips and decided this isn't the place they necessarily want to hang out all the time.

Hopefully, things wane and wax in cycles, and the people who don't say much will one day come back and say more.

As we discussed in the thread about banned users: If there's nothing exciting happening with the band, why should there be something exciting happening on the board?

As soon as there is something exciting - a line-up change for example -, there will be loads of discussions going on here, I'm sure.

Come on lads, lets just have an argument anyway what the heck . . .





Now let me see, what can we argue about? Any ideas?





I don't like fights or arguments . . . in fact I don't like any kind of confrontations. Any one out there disagree with that?
