Postby LUB_vol2 » Thu Apr 08, 2021 5:11 pm

Ello Bloodstockers!!

Long time no see. Hope everyone is doing ok. Dont know if anyone still posts here who was around 15 years ago when this was a regular haunt for me and my old user name was

lars_ulrichs_blister

*dun.. dun.. duuuuuuunnnnnn*

old logins and passwords have since been lost to time so had to re-register using new details

Anyway, hello again to all. hope ya all are well. This old duffer has finally turned 50 and has gotten a day ticket for surviving this long. My question is, how far is the lineup from being complete on the main stage? Shiny answers on a witty retort please...

Regards

Yer old Pal LUB

I remember you from my lurking days. The forum is much diminished from back then. A few years back there was an update that pretty much decimated the user base - I think we had to go through a big faff to get back on, and most didn't bother. That, and the fact forums struggle nowadays means we limp on with a handful of regulars. Gandalf still turns up now and again last time he threatened to initiate legal proceedings against other users.

To answer your question: I think bar one band on Friday and one on Saturday, the main stage is pretty much complete. However , I would expect some changes to come, especially from none uk bands. Ergo, Sunday is the most stable day at the moment.

Cheers. As much as id like to see Kreator, Priest are much more tempting so i will probably plump for Sunday barring any disasters.

Cheers

Welcome back dude. 15 years ago I was a proper lurker with a different username. Then up until about a year ago I was active under i0th til the webmaster deleted my account :evil:

Like others have said this place is pretty much dead now. The only particularly active threads are Next Announcement and 2021 Albums but we soldier on.

Welcome back, LUB. As others have mentioned, this place is now a poor imitation of the thriving community that it used to be. Almost entirely due to the owners pushing through a disastrous update. Malice or deliberate action? You decide.

As Facebook, Instagram and other social media has taken off, message boards have massively declined.

Not saying the change over didn't mess things up, just saying I think it would still be pretty dead now regardless of the change over.

Oh yes, I took your job, LUB! Wonderful to see you back here.

The update happened around the time Facebook was the hip 'n happening place to be. Easier to post, easier to join, easier to respond, no way of holding back Vicky's passionate contributions, the various Facebook groups took a commanding lead over the bollocksed up forum refurb. The younger regulars have grown up to have not enough time to be goofy, lovable idiots. We're not dead - just sat at the rose tinted window in the retirement home, muttering incoherently about the time this happened and when that person said that.
If it sounds good, listen to it
