Main Site Vs Forum

Not really a versus situation as the title implies, but more an observation. I spend a fair bit of time on the main site and i've noticed that the regular comment posters are nowhere to be seen on the forum. Really passionate posters such as rick kerch vzla, 123 charpenay, hair metal again, Doghouse Reilly, dany 69 and dare i say MetalllianStallion, amongst others,  would be welcome additions to the forum. Maybe some are not confident enough with their English, but their comments show that they are more than competent. Hey, if we can understand the incoherent, dementia ridden ramblings of KarpetRydOFunk then i think you guys will be OK

It also goes the other way. I've also noticed that regular forum posters don't tend to post comments on the main site. There are exceptions of course,  The Rocker posts from time to time and Geoff's comments pop up all the time. Actually, it's great to have a familiar name pop up in the comments section and it's been a great help on many occasions,  so thanks for that mate. 

Anyway, as i said, just an observation. BTW. I myself have posted main site comments on three albums.... i think. It was when i first joined and i considered it a sort of "rite of passage".

Must admit I wasn't fully aware of the main site. I'll check it out when I get a minute. I've never posted on there, I guess because I figure the main site will be more of a reviewers thing and the forum will be more for discussions.

Am I getting it wrong?

I find the main site invaluable. I'm always cross referencing artists. Although there's no shortage of new stuff to keep on top of,  it's great to be able to check the archives and try to find albums or bands that you may have missed or were completely unaware of . I'm also a little bit OCD about the CD's i own list, although i consider it more a "titles" i own list. Whenever i get something new i can't wait to update that list.

I did take a look, it's fun to read people's comments on albums and can help me decide whether to listen/buy it or not I guess.

On the down side, I wonder if I read all negative comments would it mean I'd avoid something which actually I would have liked if I'd given it a chance

Me? Thanks mate. ;) I did post a mass on the main pages a long, long time ago. If you'd look at the date on most the comments I made I think we're talking way over a decade now. Haha. Jeez I'm old. I did like to contribute and kept it up for a while, but kind of lost track of keeping up regular commentary on new additions - I think I actually did it for a while. It's a shame. I kind of wanted to contribute my thoughts to every single album on the main site I'd heard. Because I agree, it is a very good tool when trying to find out about releases you don't know about. 

And I'll be honest... I have read a lot of really positive comments on there about pretty shitty albums. Usually it's rare indies and maybe someone is trying to talk it up so someone pays big bucks for their copy of the CD... I dunno. But I always like to be the straight shooting voice of reason. If an album's shit, I don't mind calling it that and that was a genuine desire of mine, to give a balanced and honest opinion of albums on there... including ones which were unfairly praised. And vice versa... giving praise to the hidden gems out there. One day, when everything settles down, I'll get back and add more comments.

I think MetallianStallion was here some time ago but he had some intense arguments with Geoff :)

Geoff can be mean if he wants too...

 

Edit:  I'm not sure it was MetallianStallion, it could be a similar name.

Grrrrr! 

Yeah, I remember some cyber-arguments with that guy. And you're right. I think he came to the forum for literally one or two posts and disappeared. I think, if memory serves, he was speaking garbage over on the main site and I suggested he come to the forum so we can have a proper discussion. I haven't seen his comments for a few years, but I remember at the time he was a bit of a moron.

Biggest problem with the main site is....... I don't speak Spanish :D 

Jokes aside, I knew of the main site first and sometimes just go there to see what other people write about albums I like. Haven't been on it that often lately though and have never posted anything there either, to be honest I didn't even know you could with the same login as for the forum

I don't get it. What's so mean about going through puberty? I just wish you lot would be a bit more supportive as I go through this transitional period.

This isn't the main site? 

Must be over 10 years since I added anything in the database. Went through a period of adding some albums and added comments there. 

Just checked and I can't even log in.

I'd kind of forgotten about it.  Thanks for reminding me. Will have a wander around and see what's been added and what people are saying.

What?

How are people either ignorant of the main site's existence, or relevance? I use it all the time.

Yeah,  I know what you mean. You have to take a lot of them with a grain of salt and there's always conflicting comments. I've been looking at them long enough now to be able to recognize certain posters who have similar tastes to myself so that helps. Also, it's not so much the opinion of the poster that guides me but more so the description and comparisons made to other artists. 

That's the great thing about the main site database. I can be reading a comment that mentions another band and i can immediately go to that bands page. I've discovered many gems that way.

Ooh, yes, that feature is always really helpful : 'If you like this band then you would probably like this one too'

I've discovered bands (and films) that way a lot too

I love reading the comments, good or bad. I look at it like a movie critic, I enjoy reading/watching the comments but always check it out for myself.

Thanks for the nod!  lol  I have to admit I've been slacking on the comments on the home page  I am going to try to do a few a day to get caught back up.

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
