I was thinking that. I still check it out everyday however.... don't really know why....

The better question is what do people want to see in this forum (other than Brisbane/Gold Coast events)?

as reel big fish said "its all been done".
its kind of like a loveless marriage where both of your hearts just arent in it anymore and you have nothing new to talk about. also the whole, dare i say it, "art" of posting on forums and enjoying a good discussion/debate has been killed off with one line tweets, long winded jibberish status updates and blanket event spamming on top of a new generation of kids only in it for the next "cool" phase than exploring genres, making new friends and supporting/fowarding the scene.

..and thats not the jade talking, thats the "it used to be WAY better" talking

I think because dance music is now the current pop muzak, the clubbing youth don't exist in the same sense of community we once had to when "dance music" was less popular and events were more intimate.

"OMG Skrillex!!!" has replaced "what's this dubstep shit? I can't dance to this!!"

at least we managed to get a new nothing thread, even if it did take a little while

I got sick of seeing threads of events that I don't care about. It kinda turned into a promoters whorehouse. I enjoyed Cosmo Cater's posts, so seeing an "interview" of him in a recent Scene magazine piqued my interest, sadly it was his 5 favourite dishes, keep up the good work Scene magazine.

Unless the thread has Big Gav leading troops into battle, its really not worth clicking onto.

Yet some of them have just powered past 10k and show no signs of stopping.

I only really frequent the Prog forum these days - and the NRL thread to get trolled by Baax whenever the Tigers beat the Raiders.

You are right Aimee, nothing to do with mods lol. People are quick to blame the mods, just like they are quick to blame everything on the carbon tax and if you're Campbell Newman then the previous Labor Government.

Usually these are the same people who have NFI.

Business as usual.

But the events surrounding his departure almost made it worthwhile, when he had a big whinge on FB about it I almost keeled over with laughter. What a fucking NONCE.

Not just on the forums but going out as well. All of the older crowd that were around when I first moved to Vegas slowly but surely stopped going out, got married, had kids, became boring sods, etc.

Does anyone know what happened to Steve Shadrach??

I saw Steve Shadrach not too long ago, we were both handing out how to vote cards at our local polling booth at the last federal election.

We both lamented that we would never have a career in politics because of the vast amount of incriminating shite we posted on here over the years.

He just came to mind as someone I used to always see out and talk some smack with but then he just stopped showing his mug.

And if Bush can still get in as Prez after the Florida debacle I'm sure you can still attain MP status despite past dalliances Peter

Been on this for a while now mostly browsing as I moved from Ireland to Brisbane and since I got here been in a job that has taken up 6 days of the week and only got the internet not too long ago. Anywho, yea I noticed it was pretty dead compared to forums back home especially with Brisbane being a bigger city from were I am from I was surprised at the lack of content. Anywho any other forums or is this the main one? Need to get a good feel of what the Citys scene is like.
