I've noticed something new on the board recently.....If I do not log in, instead of topic titles, I see "protected forum". Any announcement on this change? :popcorn:

 

I suspect this is to help control the drive by morons such as our dear "friend" (I use that term very liberally and Loose) from Red Lyon, Pennsylvannia :baneed: from reading what is going on? I think it's a great idea if this is the motivation. These parasites love to read about their exploits and what problems they have created/caused thereby getting satisfaction from it. Cut them off and they don't have the same level of satisfaction in my opinion!!!

 

And of course....Ty and Mike do a fantastic job of monitoring the IP addresses of newly registered users much more closely than evil bay does it's users, so this prevents the "suspended users" from re registering with a new ID. Hey.....you think maybe you could loan those guys to Evil bay for a couple of weeks to get their operation straightened out and show them how it's done???? :headbanger:

Actually, it's a little simpler than that. I'm running into bandwidth issues at the moment with the board, and the hosting company is being a pain in the butt as far as upgrading (I'm looking at tripling my costs if I want to retain all the old posts on the board, as opposed to archiving stuff before 2008 or so). I really want to keep all the old posts, but right now I'm running out of bandwidth before I run out of month. :doh:

 

So for now I'm locking the board down to keep anonymous guests and spiders and bots from crawling all over the board, until I can get this sorted out.

 

*grumble*

I was wondering what was up with that. Since I can't login to the board from work for whatever reason, I occasionally drop by and just skim thru the posts without logging in during the day. The last day or two I haven't been able to do that. Kind of a bummer but at least I understand why it's being done.

I for one like the "protected forum". My wealth of knowledge shouldn't be available to just anyone ya know. It bothered me that just anyone could come here and take advantage of what I have to offer with so little effort. :popcorn:

Maybe Dan could set you up with your own personal forum. You could charge admission via PayPal and split the profit with him. :whistle:

 

 

Delbert could do the same with the Computer forum and probably make a lot of money here too! hahaha :tumbsup:

    • That is simply brilliant...such a great band...love that artwork...this has made my day  
    • New EP out now, digital only. From rocknloadmag.com: Swedish melodic hard rock supergroup Crowne will release a new live EP entitled ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ on 19th August, a little treat to hold fans over as they await the release of a second album by the band. A live performance ‘Kings In The North’ from the EP is available from today on all digital platforms. The studio recording of ‘Kings In The North’ was the title track of their 2021 debut album, a record that truly delivered on the promise of the combined talents of the group members. Comprised of vocalist Alexander Strandell (Art Nation), guitarist/keyboardist/producer Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.), bassist John Levén (Europe) and drummer Christian Lundqvist (The Poodles), the record was a tour de force of Scandinavian melodic hard rock. It also featured guitar solos from Love Magnusson (Dynazty), who has now joined the line-up as permanent lead guitarist. ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ features the quintet tearing through five songs from ‘Kings In The North’ and allows fans to hear (and see) them playing live in an intimate setting. Crowne is the most exciting, thrilling supergroup created to date from the Swedish melodic hard rock scene. Having already crafted a beast of a debut, this stellar cast of outstanding musicians are currently working diligently to better it with the recording of its follow-up.

    • That's good to hear. The album Vanity Kills was pretty awesome. Some of the songs had bit of modern rock vibe to them which I thought was cool. Yep, hope we get to hear more music from you guys. 
    • Album out now. Listen to the rest of the album:                  
    • 'Forgotten Toys' out now. Listen to the rest of the album:            
    • Love these guys. In my opinion, they are more of hard/melodic rock than synthwave. Plenty of guitar riffs and solos. Another killer track, my fave song so far this year.

    • Yes, I'm the new bassplayer :). I have asked Ward Dufraimont to answer your question, as he is better suited to reply: In a nutshell : Expectations were high in 2010 with a debut album out on MelodicRock Records and big dreams, unfortunately the wheels started coming off from the word ‘go’. After losing our permanent drummer and rehearsal space and wasting precious time trying to sort that all out, frustration started to kick in. In an effort to keep moving forward, we recorded a second full length album in 2012, which sits unmixed on a hard-drive somewhere. Sometimes life gets in the way, and we decided to shelve the whole thing before friendships were lost. In 2022, with enough water under the bridge, we are back in full force, with a deluxe reissue of the debut album (out of print for years) to kickstart the whole thing. Playing out as much as we can, opening for the likes of FM, Jelusick, Gun, and others this year, spreading the word. We hope to have a new single out later this year, and more new music next year. A new decade, a new lineup, a fresh start. Nothing’s gonna stop us now !
    • New album out today.  Gave it one listen and seems pretty decent and in line with their last album. Worth checking if you liked their last one.
