There was a period, known as "The Waffle Wars" where we'd hold daily raids into the General section and theyd all get there panties into a twist, posting nonsense whilst they say how good the new Ram dub was. I think the falling off point generally for forums was 2010, don't know what happened in 2010 but its been in decline ever since then, maybe youtube channels, facebook, all that.
This forum was on fire and tbh a big part of my life for several years.
Since drum & bass died around 2010 everyone just stopped coming here. Now its like a scene out of a western, You know the one's where you see the tumbleweed roll past. If it wasn't for Carl this place would be a ghost town. I still come here to check on the place its a habit I cant get out of but cant deny its nothing like it used to be, ironic I feel the same about the music.
Man I'm feeling a comeback Papa, didn't hardly post for a few years, forums are the way to go though Facebook is fucking nonsense, forums are trustworthy, thinking of doing a Compton BH mix aswell, trying to get it worked out, those Compton/West-coast things are an untapped resource of Homo-eroticism, one a quick look I came up with some real gems gunna try and work it into a mix, even the titles are hilarious
It is a terrible, terrible place Dagz, the fucking Ads are unbearable aswell, 2 week old sports stories, "like" to save cancer, top 10 actors that hated kissing men. You base your judgement on people aswell, I don't think they realise how awful they are, full on facebook, jesus I hate people after facebook, really do
We been through phases and round about 2008 this place was wild with social events, members fucking left and right, a pretty hefty drug trade, etc. But we always kept the vibe positive so as to differentiate this forum from the Internet hate machine that is DOA and dnba. As a community we were always pretty up our own arse and if you wanted in you had to eat ShIt for a while, as per usual, but not exceedingly long, in fact after some hazing the community couldn't wait to give you your gang-name and custom avatar and set you loose on the rest of the populous
These days it doesn't matter, the phases are short, the influxes of people barely noticeable, the OC few and far between, no girls left, and a hardcore group keeping the place afloat, but I think it hurts us most of all, to have known the forums former Olympian heights and even though traffic is still about the same, our community's squalor and insulation is all too evident
No, no, no. Theres was terrible amounts of cringe in the glory days. 15 The Voice threads about makeup, Lady Gaga, hair dye, and every time he managed to get the same group of members to go at him, he was a genius at that. The very same people calling him a nob in every thread. Plus thread after thread of Radius' alias'. Panty Inspector threads. There was an immense amount of cringe probably even more so than now
I loved this place back then. Id be checking it every few seconds just to see what shit had happened next. We were a great community. So many jokes times. We had two great forum meet ups, one that I even managed to organise but not turn up for! (I'm cool like that). But have met a far few of you guys over the years.
Dnbforum may even see its own marriage that originated from those good ol' days. Hahaha. Riisu & Boudi. <3
I don't want to bring the tone down, but since the passing of Fes it has brought back memories of those days and Fes' ban hammer was one of the most jokes things this forum ever witnessed. You never quite knew who would be the next victim. Hahaha. I love Fes for that.
Anyway. Thanks for the good times lads! It was a proper good laugh. In all honesty, I think we should all make the effort and have a get together for Fes. What do you guys reckon?
Hahahaha yeah totally, in that same bog aswell though, that is our spiritual home, is it still open? Theres only about 30 members now though, but I reckon if we put it on facebook people will turn up. Sort it out Rock, get a braintrust together, I'll be there
