I'm sure I'm gonna take some heat for this.. But..oh well.


This kind of goes back to the thread where a newer member "quick posted" to make the 50 required posts to be able to use the "Buy/Sell/Trade" Forum. My rant is not actually against him in particular (or anyone in particular.


Seems as every single time I post either a trade or Ebay sale withing 15 minutes someone has posted or bumped a threat ahead of it. I know that everyone has just as much right to post whenever they want. Many (if not most)of these members have actually been on the board longer than I have. Though they have been here longer, most only average about 10 to 15 posts a year. Most never have anything else to add to this forum. It's like they watch to see when someone lists something new... like it is a competition. When I post something in that forum I usually do it early on in the auction... and then the day the auctions end as a reminder.


There have even been times where I have posted a new thread.. and then went back and bumped the thread before mine back to the top. I actually feel bad when I knock someones new post down. Like I said, it almost feels like a competition or something. Anybody else ever feel the same way? Or am I just over reacting here? Or maybe I just need a break from this forum?




After going back and reading this I think I should make something clear:


Everyone I have dealt with on this board has been great. I mostly deal with the regulars here on HH. My rant wasn't against those who are on this forum on a regular basis. It's the ones that appear ONLY when they have something to sell or trade.

Don't take a break Dave. We want you here :bananamac:


I know what you mean about these posts. But is it that important to been on top in that forum. Doesn't people who wants to trade enter that forums and read the posts they think is something for them. Just my thought,,,,

I'm probably one of those guys you are referring to and I used to visit the site for many a year before signing up, although I don't keep bumping my trade post - only posted twice in 2 years. Unfortunately I have a circle of friends that I talk music with and it's only when a CD or band falls outside of the interest of the group that I post here. I'm just not the type of person to post a lot coz I just don't have the time (unless I'm really interested in something) but I will check the trade board for 5 mins everyday coz trading and collecting CDs are a hobby that I do make time for.

    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
