Hello everyone,

Well I was doing some thinking a day or two ago and realized I only know maybe a handful of the users who post in this forum. Which is pretty sad. So I figured I'd make this thread where you could contact me and I could get to know you, via AIM, MSN, or YIM conversations. Also, I think a "suggestions" thread was something this forum needed. In this thread you can organize certain forum events (i.e. the Listening Parties), exchange contact information (user to user, you may use this to even exchange your music that you make on your own or in a band or press clippings/kits whatever), or simply to give your take on how this forum can improve.

Thanks.

I'm guessing it's done in a chatroom over a Mic.

There needs to be more planning however inorder for them to work.

On the one I went to (mingus), we all hit play at the same time, and some people started spewing out random facts about obscure flute players and... yeah.

They aren't very organized though

That's the problem, a person needs to be appointed to run the entire thing. Granted they might not have all the music, but they should be the ones announcing what's going on to everyone.

You may use this thread as a Bulletin Board.

PinkFreud

thats how it happens. play gets hit at the same time and then we discuss what were thinking while listening to it. it occasionally gets sidetracked but theyre quite interesting.

I'm probably not respected enough to be put in charge, but I have some webspace now to host the album if that's ok with everyone. It's faster than YSI on both ends, and I'm the only one who could ever delete it

I haven't seen Jonm in the longest time so I guess I'll take over the listening parties.

As the polls indicated, for our next party we will be listening to Meshuggah - I.

I propose we have this party on Friday at 6 EST (Pm. of course). If anyone has any objections or suggested timeframes, feel free to post them or message me at Plateonthetable.

Pardon me for making a spelling mistake mr sticks.

Zmev, it's fine if you want to run the listening parties, since I'm probably going to be way too busy to organize once I get to school. I'll still participate, though, and I'll help out if you need me to.

Oh yeah, thread. What up, NPC.

Zmev

I've added you as a contact.

I was thinking maybe we can have an official "Alt/I Member Honor Roll". It'd be something we did every two or three months, so it'd be sort of like an Honor Roll thing. Though there can only be one winner for each period, that's the only catch to it. For prizes I was thinking just some simple things like an avatar resizing, maybe your user name would be in red or gold, and I don't know...some e-glory. Heh. Anyway, it might be something to look into if you'd all like to have a little fun with it.

Prizes!

It'd be easier just to have the whole package as the Grand Prize. Remember, it's still just in the early stages of possibly being created. I still need to talk to ol' Jim to see if he can help me out.

Also, the users will be nominated based on the informational content they post on this forum's genre.

Gotcha. So with these listening parties, does everyone download the album, play it at the same time and discuss it in a chatroom or over a microphone? I just don't get how you'd be able to listen to a song and talk (with your vocal chords) about it at the same time.

Maybe I'm just not that limber.
