I'm taking an online survey, for er, research material.
it's no coincidence
some days its not so good
some days its really interesting
some days its a bit dull
it hasn't got better or worse as a whole since i've joined, but i ovbviouisly enjoy it more now im more involved
shitter, but with peaks of aceness.
take into consideration the following
- does members of DIS sometimes isolate other members by starting threads like '______ is a bit of a tosspot, don't you think?'
- Or organsing events that only the elite know about
- Have you made friends and lovers?
- Is DIS the first thing you click on when you first turn on a computer?
and are normally aimed at the nicest people.
4. No - Gossip Column, Facebook, Sky Sports News, Liverpoolfc.tv then DiS.
what in the name of fuckcrap could that possibly mean?
if they organise them on the boards, everyone knows about them
if no one else knows about them, how is their organisation a problem?
can we have a list?
itd be like a little paradox, cos by saying no, i'd be saying that you werent l33t, and thus sort of not really giving a list!!!

Anyway, how about 'that event'?
and you were! but it was just to marilyninthesky's post, not an actual event!!!
People post stuff. Sometimes its funny, sometimes serious, sometimes not relevant to me, sometimes a character assassination on me for not liking a certain dairy product. I wouldn't say good or shit enter into. It's just a bit of fun innit.
always meets my procrastination needs
Or, maybe, I did
evolution/progression/development has, inevitably, diminished its appeal.
The pairing up, that was endemic last year, infested the relationships on the board.
It would have been better if no-one had ever met anyone else.
I want gossip
names begin with s and end in x. Apt or what?
Its like incestuous, very much so.
and then they swap
I wasn't really complaining just observing.
I'm sure everyone else does as well.
everyone assumes she means the messageboards and not, y'know, the site in general. you know, that thing that has reviews and stuff :D
We're what now?
Now will you tell me?
you probably think this post is about you
the cat's mother
lack of reviews/interesting news articles. Pitchfork is better for hearing new music.
The boards arent as good, used to be a lot funnier. Not really that bothered though.
has improved a lot. Although the front page could still do with looking a bit cleaner.
The message boards were better when less people knew each other in real life.
site - much improved apart from the pink in DiScover ewww
the reviews are miles better than before... and the boards have always been tough for me, not only for living outside of London, but in the US. I don't get what the hell you guys are talking about half the time. DiS seems intent on keeping itself Brit-centric, meh.
Plus that talking ipod banner bugs the shit outa me. Shakira in a bikini...wtf? There needs to be a little editorial staff meeting where someone says, "Hey are we fucking legit or should we just whore this site out?"
Sometimes I like it better.
Other times not so...
I miss a few people...
they ought to join the real world
london-centric. That really needs to be sorted out. And this is from someone in nottingham, where there actually IS a branch of the site.
Arguably theres not much that the staff can do- but a bit more effort could be made time-to-time.
are quite often for gigs in london. it's just little things like that.
it's getting better though with DiS sponsored tours and the like.
I understand - but they can only give away what they can get
i do some PR work for various bands/labels/things here in Cardiff and if DiS asked us for a couple of tickets to upcoming shows as competition prizes we'd probably jump at the chance (though I appreciate Cardiff is a fairly small city so offering tickets for gigs here would be a bit odd).
Perhaps arranging parralell parties...like the DiS end of summer thing- have one big bash in london and another at the same time somewhere more acessable to those who live further away. One in edinburgh, one in cardiff, on in london perhaps...
there'll be a DiS night at the upcoming Swn Festival here in Cardiff this November for instance, and they're sponsoring national tours and that (Okervil River is one coming up soon I think).
went back to being alright
now it's just ok.
I just lurked about the boards and stuff.
So I get more out of it now that I post too.
But I woudn't say it has gotten better or worse in itself.
post to post with Meths are sadly, long long gone....
by people who are rubbish at typing and spelling really.
wa referring to myself. i dont bother to see what i post i just click the button
you spelt that right!
that isnt a word
