I Have A Question For The Site....

What do you do if you want to talk about something that isnt showing up in new posts?

 

well most people would say search to see if there is already a thread, others would start a thread on it without searching...

 

now ive noticed two things on other forums, firstly, its frowned upon to start a thread that already exists, secondly, folks dont like it when you ressurcet a thread thats been dead for a year.

 

so what to do if its already had a thread about but hasnt been touched for a year or so?

 

i only asked cause i was looking for a thread about Brother Firetribe (one of my new favourite bands) and the only one i found solely for BF was about their upcoming release (which was release 21st June 06)

In my opinion there can never be too many threads about Brother Firetribe. I believe Dan And Pete, one being the sites creator and the other being one of the sites administrator, both picked False Metal as their favorite release of 2006. Therefore I'm pretty sure they won't give you any crap about starting another thread. I started the original thread on Brother Firetribe about a year ago and I'd love to see what you have to say about my favorite release of the past year.

Yea, sometimes it's fun to dredge up an old thread from the dead just to give the new blood on the board a chance to join in too. :drink:

I'm infamous for starting a thread about a topic that already has a thread, whether it's five minutes old or five years old. Oh well, it happens. I wouldn't think it's anything to worry about. :)

Go for it m'man! :drink:

 

I don't think anybody here has a problem with dredging up old threads and bringing them to life again. If there's a more current thread and you start a new one, somebody will point you to the other one with no malice whatsoever. We're not a bunch of anal retentives believe it or not, at least most of us aren't... :anon:

 

The main thing that's frowned upon around here (and rightly so IMHO) is bashing other people's opinions ala "Dude, that album sucks and you're an asshole for liking it" or something like that. You may get into some heavy debates without question, but rarely does it degenerate into name calling and genuine animosity although there is a bad apple or two around that may. In general this board seems a bit more "grown up" for lack of a better word than a lot of the other sites out there. That's why I've been here since '02 (that and I like wasting time at work...). :)

:agree: This forum is made of gentlemen, which is VERY rare nowaday.

About digging old threads : I don't think it's a problem, agree with the comments above.

yeah, the main thing that I do when a duplicate thread is made is bring the other one up so the poster can find a lot of answers because for me personally, If I've already had "that" discussion I may not want to do it again so if a lot of other posters feel like that you will not get a big response and think no one cares when in fact there is another thread that may answer a lot of questions.

Go for it...you might bring a different perspective to something old....

 

That's right , you may even be able to come up with a word that is greater than "GOD" to describle the phenomenon known as :bowdown: Paul Rodgers :whistle: When you do, let me know what it is so I can use it :lol:

Absolutely, let me know too. I don't see it, but miracles have been known to happen. :woot:

Old threads with new info is no problem for me. If I had new info about say, Brother Firetribe, I would start a new one with a new heading. That way it's different from the old one. But hey, what do I know. It took me a few years to get "accepted" into this band of bruthas and sistas. <_<

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
