the piccies thread in some weird bizarre way actually brought this community very close together- peopel could see each other in a timeliens that soumehow made us feel liek we were all in a room together.. seeing peoples lives that we never even knew existed and if they hadnt poted in that thread would never have clicked on.

It would NOT work in the general forum - however in here.. it did.

I don't find it weird at all that it works here and not in the general forum - everyone here has something in common (being musicians) and naturally want to know each other better, in the general forum that's not the case.

The general forum serves only one purpose - it is a communal dumping grounds for everyones bad energies. You come home.. you feel like shit.. you post in general. You feel like stirring shit up, you post in general. It's a no mans land of opinions and emotions. There is no clear concise direction for it- thus it can never ever change.

The audio forum however has always been a small communal place... almost to the point of elitism and snobbery towards new users, but overall, we're a good bunch. as a result the thread works - since we all know how the forum works and if a new user comes in we quickly educate them. Also pictures give us windows into each others lives - it's easy enough to say if you wanna post pics do it in your newspost - but really.. are you going to go around looking in random peopels newsposts for pics of them? Most likely not. Half the users in that thread then became regulars becasue they posted more and people could see their.. progression, and actually attach real PESONALITIES to faces.

Thats one thing general has that we don't - they have meetups - you get to see the regulars faces in the meetup threads - we don't HAVE meetups - we've had a few tiny isolated ones but thats not a real meetup. Thus I do believe its healthy to have a communal pic thread, because our conditions are different.

Piccies Thread

Hate to be a wet blanket, but personally I don't see why we should revive the thread. I don't think the Art forum, for instance, has a thread dedicated to posting photos of yourself, and those guys are probably just as much of a small 'everyone knows everyone' community as we are, so I don't see why the Audio forum should be any different.

As much as it was a nice thread, it seems a bit out of place in a forum about music production, and anyway it's more practical to actually go to a person's profile if you want to see a photo of him/her rather than search in a thread with hundreds of pages. And there are plenty of photo threads in the General Forum if some of us are adamant about posting our face on the BBS.

Might be just me though, I've never actually cared about posting photos of myself so my opinion's biased.

I think chronamut's point is that the forum isn't only a question-and-answer board for audio-related things but also a community of people. Who have personalities. and faces. And also it's not really about

And also who cares what the art forum is doing. Who said the boards have to be synchronized like that in the first place?

about looking up pictures of people on the audio forum, it's about everyone knowing what everyone looks like, and while very few people are going to look up profile pictures of other users, everyone did check out the piccie thread once in a while

dunno why that got lost

I liked the pic thread, and thought it was a great way to pull together the audio community. So what if other forums don't have anything similar, it's their loss.

Count me as a vote for unlock/rebuild/etc.

i thought about that but then it would essentially become the lounge part 2. i really don't see the problem with having a lounge and a pics thread forever blemishing the front page of the audio forum with their uniqueness. the only reason why i kept coming back to this forum was because of the interesting characters i've met that i liked talking to. sometimes i'd learn something but that wasn't important to me at the time. a number of those characters have gotten frustrated with NG though and have left or stopped coming back for whatever reason. why strip our tiny community of talented individuals from a simple meeting up point to post pictures of ourselves and have conversations about how attractive we are? it kept some of us coming back for more. these last two years I've devolved mostly to lurking because I'm just not interested in the vast army of threads about theory and gear. it get's entirely redundant.

i can't wait for rucklol to show up and be like "what are you all voting about? i'm locking this shit."

I think its worse for us becasue we've seen five YEARS of threads talking about theory and gear. Also I've noticed people seem to be gettign a bit snottier.. as a lot of music oriented sites start to get. Also peopel seem to be getting bitterer from seeing the same damn questions over and over and over.. without uniqueness to the forum it becoems the same thing in different clothing over and over and over... The piccies thread always had that relaxed fun feeling where uptight peopel could unwind, be narcissistic, and show you what kinda stuff they were interested in - and have sexy body show offs.

also - piccies thread: (81,861 views %u2022 4,204 replies)

for every post there were at least 20 views.

I said I was planning on asking her out, and she said "that would be fun."

YES

now to spend a few weeks losing as much weight as possible until an opportunity comes up to ask her.

No thanks to any of you guys, not even one person wished me luck when I asked for it.

Who the fuck are you? You have no right to come into our elite little community and start calling people fags. That's just fucking lame man. Really fucking lame. Go away >:(

Also, welcome to the audio forum. We have a thread for people awaiting audio approval. This lounge is basically for uhhh... talking about non audio related junk.

Sorry I didn't read your original post about asking some girl out LD but congrats. I completely missed that. Also, no point in wasting a few weeks trying to loose weight. She said it would be fun, so go for it and soon. She'll lose interest if you have no confidence. If you really want to lose weight, do it as you're going out with her. I doubt she's that shallow man.

I laughed harder at the video of the dog jumping out of the moving train and barrel rolling.

What the fuck?

I think I make better music when I start on shitty headphones. I don't know why but when I take things from my gfs skull candies or my crappy free ear buds to my monitors I just get blown away. Why can't I make good music from my monitors any more?

I find Comedy central to be garbage. As you stated, didn't live up to the hype. It seems to me predominantly hype. Like a masculine version of E-entertainment.

It's about how you got the first experience.
This somehow bring back memories of a story my dad told me some years ago:
A friend of him have to make a sperm test (long story, to prove that he can't have children, so his 3 kids are not his, so he can divorce... Romania of the 70s).
So, this guy didn't know where is the medical facility, my dad take him there, they give a glass recipient to the guy to "fill up". He say to my dad "can you help me ? I can't go in the bathroom... I can't cumm there. Here, take the glass recipient while I climb that tree... this is how I got my first experience... got used to it as a kid."

So... as I said, it's how you get your first experience...
