Bang and Clatter is and will always be my favourite forum on Interference, geek that I am.

I for one am not bothered by the game threads - I'm not an active participant, but I find sometimes that I'm terribly disappointed when I see someone's posted in Bang & Clatter and it's merely only to continue a song thread or something.

My main beef in Bang & Clatter is merely the proliferation of similar discussions. It's a thing that's been happening a lot in EYKIW and I'd hate for Bang and Clatter to be going the same way, especially in the past month or so where there've been way too many threads on the Killers, Keane, my favourite band, my favourite song, or the best songs ever.

Do I offer a solution? No. Because I don't have one. I don't want Bang & Clatter to be elitist music taste central; at the same time, I think it's not too much to ask for a newbie to that forum to read back a few pages and see if there was a recent discussion on the topic. I think that's the considerate thing to do.

Wow for some of you that 'dislike' this board so much you sure are adamant about changing things.

About the game and chat threads.. personally I feel that if they were all in one forum, it would kind of defeat the purpose. I cant imagine people playing a music game thread in IO or a forum just for those kinds of threads Each forum has a subject and serves a purpose.. and the game and chat threads pretty much fit into those specific forums. Plus I do believe we've had this discussion before about making a forum just for threads like these and I dont think it went over very well.

As far as repeat threads... the mods try to merge threads when we see duplicates. It's unfortunate that most people dont know how to simply scroll down the page to see if there is already an existing thread. Believe me, a couple of us mods went through hell in the tour forums during ticket sales Dont forget you can always report a thread that you feel needs to be merged, its the quickest way to get our attention. If you feel there are too many game threads in B & C perhaps we could come to some kind of compromise on getting rid of one all together? I dont really care for the idea of moving them all to IO. lol.

It looks fine to me, Sicy.

Also...if anyone sees a thread that you feel needs to be merged (for example, if there are two threads started about The Killers), contact a B&C mod...one of us would be happy to help. I've been PMed many times about merging threads (usually in PLEBA), and I always appreciate the help. Interference is huge, and we can't possibly catch everything.

I'm thinking of starting an "orphan" band thread, for those bands (like the ones I listed) which aren't likely to get many (hell, any) replies. Then we can all chat about our favorite bands and they won't get all loney and rejected because no one loves them.... Maybe tomorrow....




i'm watching my most recently thread sink like a rock. it didn't even take it 12 hours for it to fall onto page 2

As for your first comment.... lol... I noticed the same thing.

And.. you're right... we've already discussed this previously and we decided against it for the reasons you already mentioned.

Getting back to the original topic, I think it would be great if we could keep "Bang and Clatter" as more of a serious music forum.

Seeing the general scope of LS, we could move the musical game threads to LS. I must admit that I'm generally annoyed by all these monstrously large threads that really have no point, but since LS is meant to be kind of an "anything goes" forum, perhaps those game threads would have a better home there.

Yeah but then LS would just be cluttered with long threads.

LS is already cluttered with long threads - describe, randoooom, testje, and that bar is 4 already, are a few more really going to hurt?


oh, and if i don't use the smiley, and something falls to page 5 faster than a boulder to the bottom of the ocean, i can atleast delude myself into thinking that people just missed it. i bump and it gets ignored again, then i have no choice but to think that people around here really don't give a shit about my favorite bands.


last thing - it's not that i hate this place, i just hate some of the people (and if someone reading this thinks i hate them, relax- it's probably not you, and if it is...why really care anyway? chances are you hate me too).

i'm not saying this to rile you up, IWB. i've always respected and liked you as a poster, but that statement seems to be taking it just a bit too personally.

i looked at one of the threads you're talking about. the one you said took twelve hours to sink to page two. i saw that it was about some pretty agressive bands - which are not really my thing - so i read your review, chuckled to myself at the excessive use of the word "fuck" and then moved on.

it wasn't that i didn't "give a shit."

i just didn't have anything to contribute. simple as that.

I think that's often the case for many people.
