Coldplay Posted March 27, 2012 Share Posted March 27, 2012 Dear Loungers, I remember joining this forum, a timid, naïve 11-year-old with dreams of being Internet cool and engaging in 'teh secks' (cancer) with Chris Martin. This forum brought me many close friends, taught me not to care what others think, and I've learned lots of new vocabulary from douchebag intellectuals who don't like Coldplay anymore™. The Lounge I remember was a very active place, that brought us laughs from well-loved Coldplayers and morons alike. While this era had to die (via abuse, spam, racist comments, etc.), its legacy lived on. That you can walk into a messageboard about a no-longer-relevant band and walk out filled with experiences that make you a stronger and happier person. wht the fk is gong on now I was talking to Reilly and we both kinda agree that the Lounge has become an unfunny place. It might just be me being a delusional fuck but people barely post anymore, and it can't be because the MX era is over because the Lounge was very active two years after VLV was out, plus we have 30000 more members. Brent's always like "why do you complain all the time Dee" and it's because everything's so lame! Not many serious, thoughtful threads, no funny threads, no competitions or events to engage in, not even people to make fun of to make yourself feel better, just YOLO~~~bewbs/secks:huh:Tammi's thread/random posting thread/all the other popular threads filled with "dee" "tammi" "rudy" "hi" "hi" "lol" "lolz" "lulzzz" "ur mom" "gtg bye!!!" "bye"expired memesFUCK YOU HURT MY FEELINGSWERE YOU BEING SARCASTIC OR NOT I CANT TELL Maybe it's the wrong thing to make a thread about this but I wanna see if anyone agrees that we need to do something to enhance The Lounge Experience™ or if it's only me and maybe I should leave if I'm not content with how it is. We can do Tinychats or stop with the memes or send each other stuff or SOMETHING jhfjdhjd EDIT: I see that I am not the first: Everything goes mental. Noobs show up, oldies complain that it wasn't like it was in the old days, whatever new group the new sound/marketing campaign attracted take up residence, while a few regulars who either don't like the new sound or don't like the crowding on the board disappear. The Coldplay section gets really noisy for a few months, and the regulars hunker down in the lounge where business continues as usual. Eventually everything slows down and then peters off into next to nothing when the tour ends. The girly girls fade away or grow up and some of the refugees slowly come back. Regulars who were whining about the crowding and noobs start once again whining that nothing ever happens and there's nothing to talk about just like they always used to. Eventually new album details start to leak out and the whole thing starts over again. :dozey: Wash, rinse, repeat. But nevertheless, the poll results say that people are unhappy, so let's see what can be done. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
