Yearly Post Total

Recommended Posts

Yearly? Not that I'm aware of, other than manually noting your total on January 1 and then comparing it the following year.

 

If you're talking about the forum in general, same thing applies. I do know that traffic is down overall.

People are resting on their totals.They're too busy looking at their number of 10,000 + posts that they forget to post anything.

Yeah mate, I'm not sure anyone here ever even looks at their post totals. There were jokes about it in the olden days and then it just got silly with the congrats on ______'s 100th post threads every week, but thankfully that's gone for now and I really don't think anyone ever looks at that part of the screen. At least I assume that's how it rolls.

Maybe I need to congratulate everyone individually on their post totals and then my post total would increase !

And then people can congratulate you on congratulating people on their posts totals, and then you can congratulate them on congratulating you on congratulating people, and then...

I just wish more of the 'guests' would take the plunge and post - the more the merrier.

I sometimes check out the post counts. Sometimes I'll see a name I'm not familiar with, but they'll have a significant amount of posts, and I wonder where they've been. Or I'll look through the list of members and check out all the high posters that haven't been around in years and wonder what the hell happened to them. And sometimes I'll go look for the old regulars that haven't posted in years, and find that they've been active recently, but they just don't say hello. Creeps.

He came to Australia for Summer. He's currently in my basement. Unconscious. But he's there. I'll throw him a laptop later this afternoon.

With so many bands coming back and so many good new rock bands around it's sad the post counts are down.

 

With what could well be a bumper year ahead let's hope we get a few more members. There has to be somebody else out there who doesn't rate White Widdow.

I think a lot of people jumped ship and are posting on other sites. As far as myself I'm really busy with my kids and no longer have a cushy desk job so I don't have time to post.

A whole bunch spend their time posting in the melodic mafia on Facebook.

I haven't been around much. Too busy supporting local Metal bands, computer crashing. My purchasing has been on a down low as well.

Yep, one word...Facebook.

 

If we had an App I'd probably be on even more but the internet version of the site isn't bad anyway.

I think FB has a lot to do with it. A lot of forums on various topics have been replaced by social media.... but... I don't do social media, and really do not like the format for discussions and searchability. I prefer the traditional forum format.

 

I think another contributor is that I really haven't added any new functionality or given a visual overhaul to the main site. I simply don't have the time.

I don't understand how FaceTubes, or any other form of social media, can replace this site. Those are OK for discussing things for a day or two, but here we can go back to conversations from years ago, reflect, and even add to or change our opinions. It's always there for reference. FaceTubes has no search feature. There's no comparing the two. I seriously don't get it.

My purchasing has been on a down low as well.That's a quote from CDJ.What it means is that he might not break 100 CD's bought for this month.

    • Love it!  Very new-breed DRN... I don't normally dig that type of thing from my favorite 80's bands, but I'm good with it here.  Once again, Daiker is all over this one. Look at Mel slide into everyone of those notes on bass.  Dude is SOOOOOOOOOOOO damn good.  Such a shame he's virtually unknown outside Portland, Oregon (and a those of you in-the-know for this type of music).
    • The guitar-work is great.  I think it's a pretty decent cover. Look, I've been a HUGE fan since 1983, so you'll be hard-pressed to get me to say anything negative about this band.  Those of you who weren't around to see them on the Pyromania and Hysteria tours... God I feel badly for you.  "Top of their game" is a HUGE understatement.  The Beatles of my era for sure.
    • Devilment - The Great And Secret Show
    • Only point I was looking to make was that I agreed with the prior post above which had mentioned being frustrated that the guys hadn't put out many new releases over the last 15 years and that it may be beneficial to work with a better producer again.  Your follow up post pointed to the time between their earlier releases being similar and I responded to explain how I felt that was different, no worries though, we just see things differently
    • Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019.  The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/    
    • From 84 (the year after Pyromania) until 99 they released 4 studio albums, yes, but from 2000 until 2015 they released 3 studio albums, not 2. Not really that much difference. They also released the covers album, so that was pretty much the same level of output. They still continue to tour regularly and had issues such as Campbells cancer scare and recovery from that, plus the musical landscape is vastly different to that first time scale you mention.   Really not sure what your point is here?      
    • Uh...it doesn't sound bad.  Not as raw as the original and I think that hurts this version. But...if you're gonna do a cover, get the lyrics right.  "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight?"  Uh... no.
    • Damn good album...Has moved up my list also. I think as of now my top 4 are probably: Kissin' Dynamite Shiraz Lane Treat Maverick I'm not even bothering listing #5 as I'm saving a spot in the top 5 for Midnite City....Almost expecting that it'll slot in at either #1 or #2. And probably a good chance Nordic Union pushes the list also. Another release I'm really digging is Hearts On Fire.  Not officially out yet but have been listening to it for a month or so from doing a premium pre order.  Not quite making my top 5 but probably in the 6-8 range at the moment.
    • Been listening to this band a lot lately....Went back to the debut as I never spent much time with that album and sort of rediscovering it....damn good. And still like the new one a lot also....Not quite as melodic as the first couple albums but still lots of interesting hooks. Really the only album that does little for me is Into the Wild Life.  There's a few good tunes...I dig I Am The Fire....But really not much that keeps my interest on that one.
