In a year or so you'll probably be telling new members about the good old days. Its a cycle. I had to learn about a lot of stuff when I first joined. But things have changed a LOT since I first started posting.
I doubt a year is enough to educate me, haha.
Yeah, I remember some older members talking about how the news section used to be a little box. I can forsee a lot of new changes coming to AP, seeing how it's getting so big and all.

Agreed. It would be a bad idea all around, re-inforcing certain people's belief that anything said on this forum actually means something.

I definitely would. So much weird stuff has happened on this site that a book like that would be a great way to pass the time.

If AP were a place in real life, it would be like South Central LA, but instead of gangsters shooting each other it would be elitests and there would be Brand New concerts every day.

Probably around 60% of the music I listen to is Emo. I'm basically an addict.

That forum definitely changed my views of emo. I took so many recommendations, read books, and really learned the history of the genre. It also widened my music tastes to much broader horizons instead of like the handful of bands I used to listen to.

I'm only willing to spend so much time learning about a site that I go on maybe once every two days if I'm bored.

Haha, quoted for truth.

This site really is only a tiny microcosm on how the music world is right now.

Exactly. I had just started listening to music when I found it, and now I go from listening to Free Jazz to Post-hardcore to Emoviolence within the space of a playlist.

I get on here quite a lot, but I hate when people are talking about things that I wasn't here for. The book would have been a great educating tool, haha.
