    I’m pretty sure this has been said before, but with “The Race” being released (as said by Phil) and A guitar labeled St. Rescue for an unfinished song from the MX era, FFTF Probably stands for “Finished For The Fans”! And stuff like “First Steps” could be polished and made into a full length song. (I know the thread name is “FTFF” but I checked back to the EL booklet and it’s actually FFTF)

    Whoah, Finished For The Fans is the only theory that actually makes sense to me.

    Just corrected the thread name also!

  2. One of the memory modules in the server went faulty and caused the downloads section to become corrupt. What does this mean? Well the memory modules have been replaced and hard drives fixed but all data has been lost. Luckily everything is backed up but it will take some time to get everything uploaded again. For now, everything is still there to stream but not to download. It's an easy fix but just tedious as it takes a while to upload such large files.


    Should be back to normal soon!

  3. You can post them in the upload section and I will organise them properly so that they are available in the downloads tab at the top of the page. For it to qualify you have to know where it came from and what was done to the file, ie. if it was compressed.

    I have wanted to talk about this, when I look at the forum page there are these sections with the  blue dots and is quite annoying look at or read everything that is beside these dots. Every time I look there, I think there's something wrong with my eyes but it seems that it's just a shadow in the background. So, my question is: can you change this shadow effect for everything that is behind the blue dots (like a different background shadow)?




    This has been annoying me for a while too. It has been fixed!

    Glad to see this forum still active! I usually visit at least once a week (mostly lurking and liking posts haha) but I hadn't visited it for a few weeks. I like the new design and hope everyone is okay, especially with everything that's going on in the world ❤️ 

    Reading I ran away's post above made me realise that I have been a member for 4 years (since late March 2016) and a Coldplayer for 4,5 years which is insane to me. It seems like it was yesterday when I really got into Coldplay but time passed without me even realising it. I wasn't the same person I was 4,5 years ago and Coldplay and this forum helped me feel better back then and still do. Even when there are times when I haven't listened to Coldplay in a while, they are still in my heart and when I listen to them again their songs have the same effect on me like always. I think Coldplay will always have that special spot in my heart. I hope Coldplaying will exist for many more years as well, I really like that we have a forum that all of us can connect, this community is one of the best I've stumbled upon. 

    Also wanted to say that I love that Coldplay has been interacting with us a little bit these past few weeks, with Chris' live, Jonny recommending songs, Guy posting interesting things ( also happy birthday to this beautiful bassist ❤️ ).

    I don' really know why I am writing this, it's really late here and I should be sleeping lol 😛 i just wanted to say thank you to Coldplay for coming into my life and Coldplaying for existing I guess and I'll come back tomorrow to see more posts that I've missed

    Great to see you back here! I can't even remember when I joined Coldplaying (my join date gets reset often due to all the database work I do) but I think I just passed 5 years! I may be a bit biased but I think it's a lovely place for all of us to come together and discuss nothing but Coldplay 😛 it has felt extra special lately with everything going on.

    Don't worry, Coldplaying will be here until the day I physically can no longer run it!

    Thank you for coming on here and contributing 🙂

  6. A Coldplaying team member has received an email from LiveNation alerting them that Coldplay has added a new show for Thursday, Dec 31st. Could this potentially mean a new album is in the works? Is this just a once off appearance or perhaps it could be a mistake?

    All we know is that she received a similar email announcing Coldplay’s January show in the Hollywood Palladium.

    Hey Stephen, you've been doing a great job redesigning the site! I like it, it looks cool! I'd like to ask if it is possible to enable the push notifications for the web browser on a mobile phone. In the past I found it very useful. Moreover, I've noticed that the current colour of the quoted text in personal messages makes it a bit difficult for reading. At least in my opinion it's tough to read a dark text on a dark background.

    Can you send a screenshot of the quoted text?

  8. Update: The site is being rebuilt and re-indexed. Right now you may notice a few glitches including post counts being incorrect and a few 'post not found' messages. These will all be fixed but the site has to go through a long process of rebuilding. During that time, search will not work. This may take a few days or even a few weeks before it is all back to normal. Most of you will not notice any difference but I just wanted to let you all know it will be fixed soon 🙂

    In the meantime, if you encounter any other bugs, please let me know! I am trying to get out of Beta as soon as possible

    Edit: I made a few changes and it seems that signatures are coming back slowly!

  9. New Downloads page has been finished. Much easier for me in the backend so hopefully it will start to fill up with more files. Also you can now stream video which is amazing! Some of these files are huge but the streams are adaptive and will adjust quality depending on your connection.

    Let me know what ye think!

    is it possible to redirect https://coldplaying.com/forum to https://coldplaying.com/forums ? Because that was my bookmark (and I assume any other people's), but now it doesn't work anymore because it's forums in the plural now. Obviously it takes less than a minute to just update the bookmark but maybe people who haven't visited in a while will think the forum is offline because they used an old bookmark

    Great idea, just implemented that there!

    I absolutely second the idea with the New posts button, that's a very important one I think.

    Also, two more things:

    1. I use Coldplaying a lot on mobile browser, but when I open the forums page now I can't see the notifications and messages buttons in the upper right corner anymore. You first have to open up a menu to get there. From past experience it has really come in handy to see the red number of notifications and messages at a glance.

    2. Would it be possible to add back a member's join date to the profile info shown next to the posts ? I think it's so cool to see at a glance whether someone is an old or new member, for a variety of purposes. Also the roles like Honorary Coldplayer etc. seem to be missing.

    Thanks for considering 😉

    I've put a new posts button in the menu and one in the top right of the page under the social media buttons. Is that okay for everyone?

    I'm not sure if I can change the position of the notification button but its only an extra click anyway. I think it shows the number of new notifications at the bottom of the screen when you log in for a few seconds.

    I will try and add the member join date and badges now!
