The following is a post I feel strongly about concerning the slow & sad death of a forum many indie musicians used to thrive at. We shared many an idea & conversation there, but many
factors have forced the site into near-cyber-oblivian. I post this here as a back-up, in case the posting gets deleted by moderators.
Here is the posting, titled "errrrrrr!!!! (he said with a high screeching voice)":
The IH forums are moving about as fast as me getting a new cd out! ba-dum-bump
The IH forums are nearly as entertaining as an Al Gore choreographed dance routine. ba-dum-bump
The IH forums make recent Van Halen reunion attempts look promising. ba-dum-bump
The IH forums have made even yet another Rocky Balboa comeback seem possible. ba-dum-bump
The IH forums have put on brakes Midas would be proud of! ba-dum-bump
The IH forums need some new life breathed into it's lungs. C'mon people!
This is going to sound like I'm baiting you & maybe I am, but I visited F**EnD*R recently for giggles & noticed they are still thriving over there, with even a few IH'ers contributing. Meanwhile, IH is looking more & more like a dead dog on the side of the road with no-one seeming to give a rat's behind. The old excuse that the days of forums are over is a lame excuse at best.
Why has this place been allowed to dive this way? Everyone seemed so passionate a couple years back. Especially in being so anti F3R. Was that the only thing that drove everyone here? Is that all she wrote? Are you all done? Just give up the ship & disband?
Seems the only time anyone has anything to say is if Mike M. makes another mind-bending contribution. Even the most recent Damien Project yogurt tosses have raised barely an eyebrow here.
IT'S TIME FOR A GUT-CHECK HERE FOLKS!
Why not re-kindle some friendships & bring in some new artists to share the love & regenerate a good idea, otherwise just admit this was a failed experiment & say so at the top of the page. Post a bold statement that the dream is over inder the IH banner. I would find that sad, but at least it would offer some closure, which seems to be needed, sort of.
I believed in you guys. Closed up my Premium F3R account.
So sad, she wrote. So sad.
