I really debated starting this when the new site went up, but no one would have remembered it. And Dave's thread too, but I haven't talked to Dave since MySpace was still current.
Dave? Not sure if I remember who that is.
Nice to see you, btw. =P
Dave was Obsidian, and it was Dave's Thread for Self Mutilation or something along those lines. It was in the Lyricist's Corner.
I'll be here pretty regularly again, things have finally calmed down for me :)
Ohhh I remember Dave. He'd always put the D with the little slash through it.
It seems that Sparkart no longer does the website, what happened there if you know?
I don't know all the details, just that they wanted to go in a new direction with the website so it was more than just a messageboard. Never thought I'd say it, but I miss Sparkart haha. I'm not real huge into social networking, and I liked the simplicity of it. And call me old school or whatever, but I loved having a join date and post count :p
Yeah. I think they could have better implemented everything together on the site and kept the old VBulletin forums so they didn't lose the community they had. I can't even remember my join date and last post count.
No idea what my post count was, but I know I had a 2001 join date, I think it was August maybe? And I really miss all the debates everyone used to have, there were some serious discussions going on. Lots of people made really good points backed up great research as well as personal beliefs. That's something that is definitely missing on the new site. It seems like a lot of members now are only about posting about the band (which I get, hey it's their fan website lol) but I miss the seriousness a lot of original members brought.
