just be glad it isn't the last fm forum:
The caption says it all.
and.. well.. you get where i'm going.
when you read on and it emerges that altered Batman jpgs are all that person uses to communicate
i was just about to post that
or the /b/stards
The most offensive image posting/hacking/personal attacks on the internet.
but long term exposure can damage your faith in humanity
not /b/stards. not that i ever use it any more anyway. it's just got worse, somehow.
I don't post on there though.
It would be an acceptable setup if there were only a couple of posts per day, not the tens of billions that there actually are.
Nested crap, no quoting, entire threads on one page, laughable search function, minimal post histories, no ease of navigation, etc. etc.
I daresay this isn't an original gripe. I don't care.
are the reason this is a great board
and, indeed, shit
there are about fifty million pro/phpBB boards out there, don't need another one.
"so, might as well fuck one with AIDS"
I think that's the logic you're using.
Seriously, this place navigates like cowpat.
it's purely a question of preference.
not at all. as has been demonstrated, people like how this board operates, and that's why they use it. i'm not sure anyone likes AIDS.
But with regard to navigation - how do you find threads older than a couple of seconds if you're looking for them?
I'm not being facetious (for once) - I really can't work it out.
I'll give you that one. If it's fairly recent I'd just click "next page" a few times – beyond that it's a question of hoping that Google has archived the thread. Or looking through your own browser history.
I don't mind the nested weirdness, though it does make it easy to miss comments, or the single page thing (which, admittedly, is fairly handy in some respects) - it's the search/navigation thing that gets to me.
Glad I'm not the only one.
within a few minutes. "site:drwonedinsound.com search term" in google finds anything you want. after that if you have firefox 3 anything will come up just by typing the thread title
and surely it would be better if the board just had a decent search function?
Oh, I'm so naive, etc etc.
if people are able to use it properly.
most people are not capable of this.
I'm constantly amazed that people still get that wrong around here.
I wish we could put images in posts sometimes.
That would definitely, DEFINITELY be used for evil. Imagine how browser-destroying anything craigfoley or georgiabeth posted would be.
i don't have any screencaps from #1 :(
I think #1 must have been before my time
Break the swear filter day was another favourite.
whenever they switched over to the last design. late 2005 maybe?
the best bit was when someone posted a picture of crablin's face as a thread title.
Though the thread that was just a massive image of Crablin's face takes the biscuit.
because <marquee> tags worked.
HTMHell day 1 or 2?
That slayed me.
i want that day back :(
"no wonder we don't get html" in the thread list at the side :D
Soooooo, tell us what fake account you were using!1!1!!1!
DiS was broken in IE! possibly because of the GIANT SPIDER you posted as a thread title.
I still remember that. I think I was the one who ruined it totally.
my SECOND girlfriend. the first one was really hot but seemed to have a split personaility.
doesn't make you your girlfriend.
Oh, I see you point. Should I start posting on last fm instead then?
