The old one was getting unwieldy and attracting the attention of numpties who joined up to read it, and whom we have had to ban in a rather tedious game of interwebz Whack-a-Mole, so the Admins have decided to park the old thread in the secret room, where it will remain, possibly forever, although I suppose we could bring it out annually for an airing on preludin's birthday. So carry on bitching, or merely gossiping, here if you like, but remember, although many preludin members have personal feuds going with some BCBers (and the Admins both hold up their hands to this), we are NOT at war with the board: Preludin was started to be a better, saner (by some definitions), less toxic place to write and read about music, visual arts, and whatever other stuff occurs to members, and bringing board meltdowns over here and issuing provocations are not particularly welcome. After all, the great majority of those here are members of both boards. While we wouldn't want to compromise the, ahem, robust nature of many posters' styles, the Admins (well, me) reserve the right to delete posts in this thread and elsewhere that don't conform to this. After all, one of the problems with the other place, and one of the reasons why it is slowly going tits up, is that it is not actually adminned in this sense at all, and that the people who actually care about keeping it going and would like to make changes do not have any power to do so. We have also decided to open up the general section for guests to read (only members will be able to post in General) because that's where quite a lot of the action is and the guest views of the front page make the place look moribund without it.

What gets me is their supposed disinterest in Preludin, yet they come over and read the threads. Why would you want to rile yourself up that way if you have disdain, mild or major, for a place?
I don't really have a problem with the folks over there except for one person who made it uncomfortable on a daily basis. Enough to where I don't see myself going back, but I'll hover to see what's being written about in the sports section and take brief looks in YY and NDL
the weirdest part for me is that nobody here denies that Coan can have All Cap meltdowns or that skope can be stalky. still, all in all... isn't this place shaping up to be a MUCH, MUCH friendlier hang? It sure seems like it's shaking out that way to me.
