|I stumbled upon THIS thread from 2003 where members, even back then, made the same argument that today's members make about the boards "not being what they used to". |
Like college this community is what you make of it. Sure there are some shitty things you can't avoid like spam threads, threads from extreme n00bs or even repetitive threads. However there tend to be some really funny and some pretty interesting threads that stir up some good discussion and in rare cases, a general member consensus.
Of course it's a bummer when cool posters stop coming around and interesting people get banned or just leave on their own free will. What's even more interesting is that many original posters from 2002-2006 still come around in small doses and yet no one seems to notice. I guess few ever leave for good, they just don't come back in the same fashion, given the ever changing presence of the board.
Anyway, the best part of said thread is this quote:
It's like opening a time capsule. Not only was 2004 an enjoyable year for music but so was 2005 and 2006. Sadly, most people feel as though that's where it ended. It's interesting to see that suggestion because things did get better. What's unfortunate is that we're back in that same place, wondering what's happened to this place and this "scene". Maybe 2010 things will get better? We can at least hope, can't we?
