Re: A Deep Purple MkI Forum (or board)


I fancy any forum where the fabulous Deep Purple mk 1 can be discussed!

The pros and cons of various board admin strategies ain't like my cup of meat, though.

Re: A Deep Purple MkI Forum (or board)


 Well, MkI fans, it looks like the tyranny of the majority has spoken. emoticon
 The poll will remain open, and we can only hope that if enough MkI fans speak through the vote process, the minds that are against a MkI board may gradually change...
 Though I think it goes without saying that I don't believe I've seen a really totally valid reason NOT to do it yet - the only logic for supporting Coverdale + Turner boards seems to be based on the "extensive" solo careers of the individuals. To this I say - so what? That's why there are web sites and individual forums for those individuals. I guess the fact they fail to attract the numbers a Deep Purple forum does speaks for itself, doesn't it? emoticon They each have small roles in the history of Deep Purple (Coverdale's + Hughes' was far more signifigant, granted), not a quarter as important as the Mk that was the genesis of it all.
 I guess we MkI fans and admirers don't even get the chance that certain individuals with as little to do with - or as much to do with - Purple's history do.I've noticed (literally) months go by with no new topics or posts on the Coverdale,Hughes, Turner + Bolin boards...I guess having administrators as fans helps... Though I hasten to point out that I myself didn't raise the argument about who or what part of Deep Purple's history is more signifigant or deserving of an individual board - I'm just commenting on what's been said since the topic was started.
 In closing, let me point out that the band Deep Purple (MkI), from which the current line up morphed, and the band Deep Purple as a whole has one helluva recording history that neither began in 1973 with David Coverdale + Glenn Hughes, nor ended in 1976 with the break up of MkIV. Nor did that history begi and end with the Little Squealing Morphodite era.

I have to say: It's not that Mk I's music is bad or boring - But an own forum? Seems really exaggerated. emoticon

Re: A Deep Purple MkI Forum (or board)


The main reason I believe it should be
is because it would designate discussion to just mkI,and that makes sense to me. emoticon

Re: A Deep Purple MkI Forum (or board)


I almost suggested this idea myself.
But what held me back was the realization that it could be misconstrued as overly "self-serving" on my part, since everyone knows I'm a Mk I fan to a fault.

So I started the Mark One Advoctn. Synd. instead, in the hopes that that would get the ball rolling and others would step up to the plate and reply to my thread....

....And what do you know? They did, so it shows me that the idea is not as far fetched as one may think.

I'll vote with my heart and say YES, but I also understand why others wouldn't want it. I'll continue to be very happy here either way. emoticon

How dare you insinuate that. What on earth do you think the Purple discussions are for? The last time I looked, MK1 went under the banner of Deep Purple.

I'm a huge MK1 fan, but you have to draw the line somewhere. If I, or the other admins, are so bias as you suggest, I'd have created a forum for MK1 long ago so that I could discuss them as I liked!

The Coverdale/Hughes/Turner boards were continuations of the old forum, which Doug and Dave set up. They, as far as I am aware of, were not the biggest fans of this lot. They were not our additions.

a) Didn't mean for that to read as harsh as it did - I should've included a "winkyball". About the "conspiracy theory" dig, I mean. Sorry if I offended anyone. I did take liberties with that " (literally)months go by" crack, though. Probably more like 3 weeks... As for MkI falling under the general banner of Purple, then that fits nicely along with some of my reasoning behind the suggestion. This is primarily the "Deep Purple Fan Forum" is it not? Also, will not DP/MKI always be an integral part of the band" rich history? The last time I checked, MkI was then and is now - Deep Purple. Coverdale + Hughes haven't been associated with Deep Purple for going on 28 years, this June...Turner for at least the last 12 or so, right?

b) Oh, that's understood. I'm merely questioning or expressing concern about where that line's been drawn, is all. emoticon Of course there's a bias, there's understood too - again, I'm just questioning which the way the bias happens to go, in this case against a bias I'd support (a MkI board). emoticon I appreciate your division on the subject, the difficulty of it. Sounds like personally you may be biased for it, but administatively you're biased against it. I'm glad I only have to sweat my one side of it as a huge MkI fan, also. emoticon

c) To this I gotta say, "So?" boards are added all the time...and I thought this was a new forum, thus boards can be changed (added to or taken away) as a forum grows and changes. I said the same thing about them on on the old forum (DaveH + DougM + RasmusH's). I'm not saying get rid of those boards - just that a MkI board deserves a chance. The old forum did have the "Bogus Deep Purple 1980" board, (which to my way of thinking could've - and should've - been a MkI board, only a title change was necessary, because the switch could've and should've included the 1980 episode under an umbrella of Evan's post-MkI career) again,I'm questioning the bias against making that "addition". emoticon I didn't even realize Dave and or Doug had a hand in this forum's layout...I thought Niko + Milan did it. emoticon

They stole the idea, didn't they? Or changed
as little as possible...

I like the "mk I advocation syndicate", if it grows large then maybe Ed's idea will natural thing.

Mark I is a special era, least like any of the other (that can be dicussed of course), often neglected due to the success of the following line up's (or is other reason's even more important?? dicuss further!).
 
I guess there's enough material to be dicussed on it's own there. If there's a general interest for it, I'll guess we soon can tell from B3Burner's "mkI-a.s."
