Why is Other Topics so dead?

Recommended Posts

I click on Other Topics, more then I click on John Williams.

Hey, ho. It's swings and roundabouts. It'll come around, soon enough.

 

 

(edit) see?

Ever since the political embargo, Other Topics has gone down in flames like a Ukrainian airliner.

Topical.

The beaurocrats are in charge, now. This is where Other Topics' power will disappear.

Don't talk about the weather or Jason will close this one too.

 

Well he closed the Australia thread, which made no sense to me. Are countries a forbidden subject now?

Lee said "Ricard", and not "Richard".

 

Blume will no doubt come back with something like, "I can't see Lee so I obviously meant Richard" even though he clearly meant Ricard - and forgot that he'd previously claimed to have blocked me.

 

Blocking me is such a waste anyway, which Blume at least understands. I don't block any fucker anymore. Ignore a few, but block none. The board is already boring enough without filtering out even more participants.

I'm a newbie here, so please, why is JWFan so boring these days? Too much discussion about film music and Star Wars? But, if people don't want to talk about that, they want threads about what, exactly? Politics? You really want to go on a forum dedicated to one of the most beloved composers of all time to talk just about Trump, elections, war with Iran, etc?

 

Or rather, do you prefer mods allow the members to post porn? Because there's a plethora of sites that offer just that. Seriously, just Google sex, you'll get almost 6 billion results. 95% of the internet is dedicated to porn, we don't need JWFan to become another site for it.

 

But if the countless discussions about SW, TROS, minutia about JW's scores, are annoying you, so I don't really know, I joined the forum precisely for the detailed discussion about scores, not to talk about Trump or whatever.

Wow that substantial reply came in seconds flat! How did you do that?

 

Me calling the forum boring is a long running broken record. Pay no mind.

 

It definitely used to be radically more interesting and fun here though, the old guard would agree. Then again, JW was much more active back then too.

Imagine doing that for 15+ years though, over and over. Topics other than JW are more interesting these days than topics about him.

 

You are new though, remember.

I don't see posts from Lee. iOS keyboard autocorrected, doesn't want Richard to exist. Dammit Tim Cook.

I'm not opposed to doing a politics thread if that's what people want to, as long as you keep all the garbage in there. That way, people who have an urgent need to talk about the subject on a film music forum can do so, while people who have no interest won't be obligated to read the crap that'll go into there.

 

I've been on another forum for almost 7 years, mostly dedicated to superhero movies and the occasional blockbuster like Star Wars or The Hobbit, and it did had its politics thread, which prevented of the garbage spewing over to the other threads. Sure, there were one or two more militant members, who had the goal of spreading their political gospel all over the forum, so they posted crap on the movies threads, but aside from that, it served well the forum. I myself rarely entered there, it was mostly lots of people on the far right, one centrist and one on the far left debating with VERY LONG posts about it.

I don't need to talk to you on Facebook, i just need your pictures!

 

Aww, you have a man crush on me? That's so cute. Sorry, I'm not into European middle-aged men. You definitely aren't getting unblocked, creeper.

You really are new. But when you've been here for almost two decades, film music discussion wears thin, but you enjoy the company of the longterm members, and you want to find other shit to chat about.

 

For some of us, JWfan is more than just a hub for discussions on a film composer and by extension, pop culture. It functions more like a pub where we like to congregate, take the piss and have a brawl. We're not all necessarily going to see eye-to-eye and sometimes feelings get hurt, but the forum managers wet the bed at that notion and think they can artificially erase that inconvenience by forbidding discussions that are topical and transcend the usual safe and banal video game geek chatter.

 

And sure, we could go elsewhere are talk about meaningful things that you dismiss as "garbage", but it wouldn't be with the same sense of humour and irony about it, they're probably full of strangers and wouldn't be as fun. It's the combination of the forum's collective knowledge, viewpoints and humour that makes it more fun and amusing to address controversial matters here.

 

And sometimes we hurl a bit of abuse at each other, so what? We had fun!

 

So, if that's what people want, let's create a JWFan saving thread, then, where people can post about politics, sex, and the usual bantering and bickering with each other. Only rules: no forbidden stuff like child pornography, animal abuse or incentive to suicide, after all, this ain't (so far) the Deep Web; and contain the crap to this thread. 

 

That way, you veterans can talk about ~meaningful~ stuff like Brexit, the Trump administration and whatever, while me and the rest of the other loosers can continue to read and discuss about boring stuff like, you know, films and scores.
