There has been a HELL of a lot of 'newbies' coming on here! Is this the beginning of a new 'Queenmania' phase or is someone just taking the piss?? Cos the topics seem to be quite crap too!

Oh yeah, and I got GH3 on vinyl today, its quite nice :)

Perhaps both. I know at my high school there are a lot of people who listen to Queen through the Greatest Hits 1-2 box collection. As for taking the piss, I know for myself I try to read up as much as I can on something before I post subjects on a message board about it. One would hope that a newbie wondering the meaning behind Bohemian Rhapsody (the meaning of which, by the way, was readily evident to me when I first listened to it) would search around on the boards to find the answer first before making a whole new subject devoted to it.

You see, you sound quite 'normal' for a newbie! Im not picking out names, topics or thickasfuckness, but even some older users of this board are posting wank topics at the moment cos they seem to be in fashion!

I appreciate newbies for joining this site they might regret it though in about two years!

There's been a wave of people getting into classic rock lately, so that could be the reason. But once you get one stupid topic, you have more that follow. It's the domino effect.

I do not think im being harsh in the slightest! Im not a Queen 'boffin', I just love their music. If ever I needed info then Id look it up, instead of posting useless rubbish on here! We all need info, and share opinions! Its just that some people are more intelligent than others!

I guess I'm a "newbie" even though I've been visiting this site for a while. However, I only joined today. Despite the fact that I am a new fan of Queen (I'm 16 and I have liked them for a while but have only become really interested in the past couple of years) I hope I have a reasonable amount of knowledge on Queen. I will try desperately hard not to ask "silly questions" - even though I only joined today, I have read some of the topics that you are talking about and I can see what you mean.
Younger people are starting to get into Queen music- as someone said earlier, compared to the kind of music that is around these days, it is a welcome change. :-)

Oh, and, uh, hi.

I know a lot of people have loved it forever, but there have been a lot of people getting into the music lately, but whether it's because they actually like it or because it's trendy, I don't know. There was an article online a few months ago, but I can't for the life of me remember where it came from.

It's either that or all the rap that's so huge here now.

I lurk more than I post cause I only speak when I have something to say. And I'm not really that much of a newbie either. And I know I've posted more than four times cause the board has been acting up and Richard is fixing it and making it better.

I do think that more and more ppl are getting attracted to Queen or getting into them again. And why not? They are a great band and why shouldn't they get more fans all the time. The Beatles are getting more fans all the time so why shouldn't Queen?

I sorta welcome newbies wholeheartedly because i think of queen now more as a label to sell. (as brian seems to!) The more that come in and spread the word, the more the music will live on and spread. we all say things and ask things at the beginning that seem trivial, id love to look up pims early posts :D but like mrs badguy said, its all good really. we just need patience!

Your topics have been nothing but exemplary, though, REALLY. Or, should I say "topic"... but it was really a whiny "gripe", now, wasn't it? Difficult to assign any merit to your assessment of "crap" being that we haven't really got any quality ones of YOURS to compare them to, now do we? If newbie topics don't interest you, why not create better ones?

Not everyone creates new topics, but not everyone is so bold in their attacks on the worthiness of new participants.

Your judmental brand of arrogance would not be missed were it to disappear. Don't you have a wife or a dog to beat?

I'm not talking about anybody on these boards; I know everyone on here is here because they love the music, not because it's 'popular' or whatever. I'm just talking about people I know who wear Led Zeppelin shirts and can't even tell you more than three songs by them.

I'm a fan of Queen since I was 15 years old (back 1992) and a queenzoner since last year. Yet this just is my third post; I prefer to be behind the scene (in part because I am so busy with muy graduate studies), because just a small percentage of the posted topics are REALLY worth of attention.
