PostSubject: Are we dead?   Are we dead? EmptySat Jun 11, 2011 4:48 pm

So, I've been shirking us for about 3 months now. I'm not sure why, but every time I passed by I just didn't read the new posts. Considering it's been so long since anything's been said, I doubt any of you are still watching, but if you are, perhaps we can give it one last go, or at least acknowledge that you've seen this.

I really enjoyed this place, and I feel the fool for letting it go under like this.


Sincerely, teh admin

I'm still here, mainly from force of habit after visiting at least daily for a good year and a half.

I enjoyed this place hugely while it was active and it would be awesome to get it up and running again, though I dunno if that would even be possible. I have Cthulhu, Wizard and Vintage on facebook so I could contact them easily enough but I dunno if any of them would return. Actually Wizard probably wouldn't have the time, she's a mother now...

So, without meaning to sound all ghey and corny, if you're up to trying to resurrect this place Knightfall then count me in.

Also, how'd you manage to make this appear in every subforum? Finally getting a handle on the admin panel? Razz

Yeah, I'm up for it. I've got a good few months of free time before college starts. I dunno what's happened to Cthulhu, he hasn't been anywhere lately, and the last time I saw him he was fanning BMTH. Hadn't heard the news about Wizard, I really have been gone a long time. I suppose if we're to bring this place back, the first place to start would be advertising...

I dunno how the announcement thing worked, honestly. Forumotion must've been updating in my absence, because when I posted this the option for a global announcement was just there on its own.

Good to see you again.

Right, I'll message some of the users I'm still in contact with and see how that goes. Honestly I won't be able to do much advertising for this place, since I'm only on MA these days. I'll have a lot of free time soon as well, mid-year break starts for me in less than two weeks. Just have to learn all the course material for my exams first (there must be a moral there somewhere...).

Forum prune/clean up?

'Tis good to see you too. What's new in your world?

Yeah, a clean up would be nice. I'm currently searching for some new sites to ad on.

Well, I recently graduated high-school and am signed up for college in the fall. Other than that, my increasingly intimate relationship, and constant search for new shit, not a whole has changed. How about you?

I've done a bit of a clean up of the music section, didn't delete anything, just sent stuff to the trash, and moved some stuff around. Hopefully that'll de-clutter the place a bit.

What are you majoring in?

I haven't been up to much. The eternal search for new music, which has led me into the neofolk, shoegaze and martial industrial genres amongst other places has continued, and otherwise I've been busy with University studies.

Yeah, that should help a bit.

I'm currently (well, in the fall) going to a community college for a two-year in computer engineering and then will transfer that credit towards a university and a degree in cyber-technology. I'm gonna be a professional nerd.

My music search hasn't taken me so much to new genres as much as it has refined my tastes for the ones I already knew. Haven't heard much Neofolk or Shoegaze, any recs?

I'll give some shoegaze ones at a later date, I've got a whole lot of shoegaze stuff that I've downloaded but have yet to hear.

As for neofolk, though:

Nest: Fairly well known, and a good intro to the more atmospheric, ambient side of the genre. Their second album has longer, more atmospheric songs that the debut, which the link is from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eihs8V6Qcmc

Empyrium: They were a metal band once I believe, so you may know them already. Their neofolk stuff is good though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WOwpvrHsfk

Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat: I've only heard one album by them, but it's good stuff. Perhaps a little on more accessible, poppier side of the genre: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZ2SvK6pwqQ

Germany has a fair few quality neofolk bands actually, Darkwood perhaps being the best, their lyrics are in both German and English. Nebelung are worth checking out too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0ujMrD1Zpk & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kv8YidYlqM

Death in June is one the pioneers of the genre, fairly well known and a bit more experimental than other bands from the genre: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgtfL25WrPk

My youtubes are a bit slow right now due to current downloads, but I'll get on those as soon as I can. I liked what I heard of Nest before it stopped loading. Will have to work on the rest tomorrow.

I'm not dead, just been inactive for how long now? Did I come in just in the nick of time to prevent this account from being deleted?

A year and a half and no, respectively. Anyways welcome back Hamster. More frequent posters would be nice about now.

Indeed

Well, has every forum I've ever been on already jumped the shark? This forum makes all but one, and that last one is home to just me and a very close friend of mine. I doubt that one will hit its apex for a while yet.

Due to various things filling my life up with stuff to do, I haven't had much time for searching for new music. That, and I'm pretty much happy with the selection I've already got.

I'm up for visiting this site a few times every day, maybe posting once or twice if needed to help move things along. However, I'm trying to become a professional author, so my schedule is a bit weird currently.

This place jumped the shark ages ago. Now it's jumping back the way it came, metaphorically speaking.

Yes, I did have to Google what that phrase meant.

And is it just me, or did Cthulhu's avatar change suddenly without any input from him?

Nah, he changed it to that shortly before he disappeared from the internet. I think he and Pery were the last ones to post before we went completely silent.

Honestly I have no idea what happened to Cthulhu. I haven't seen him online in a very long time and the last time I did he was fanboying BMTH and The Beatles. It was weird.


Also, Hammy, what sort of books are you looking to write?

Sci-fi and Fantasy for the most part, probably with some Science Fantasy thrown in. I won't keep myself too tied to the genre though, and more go with what seems best for the story.

I already have started a Medieval Fantasy novel in which the main character is a new recruit to a Demon Hunting guild, and the story is about the exploits of that Guild and its members, and its war with the Demons who terrorize all the humans.

Why would Per be glad I'm back? He never liked me or my musical tastes.

Well, except for those rare times I agreed with him on Battle of the Bands.

And I moved this here so people can still post in it while the admins (read: me) clean up the place a bit, since I don't think regular members can post in the Rules and Announcements board, where I planned to send this topic.

Actually, Hammy, can you try posting/replying in the Rules and Announcements Board?
