That's all I wanted to say.

Reason:

-Too many silly topics. ('When did Freddie die'?, Where is Freddie burned, I saw and heard Queen on television / radio yesterday in a commercial)

please look at forums of other bands, Queen fans (not all of them of course) are pretty strange people...

Queenzone has a bunch of little kids who don't even know what a 'single' is... and download their music off of limewire. It's pathetic people don't realize what the demo of Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow sounds like, as well as the demo of Living On My Own, and I'm talking about the pathetic youtube video with them mixed together.

I do agree with you on your first part, how ever what about the older people who don’t have access to demos? Or live in places where it’s hard to get music of that calibre. I mean most of this would come of the net nowadays, but say you don’t have the net? You might be going to your local library for net use to which you may not be able to download music ect ect. Iv been in to queen since I was three and have heaps of stuff. I even have the “Live Kills” single on vinyl, but no demos, so there is valid reason as to why true fans of that nature don’t have access nor have heard certain demos. So to dismiss it as being pathetic not to hear demos is probably in my mind not very diplomatic as we may not be as fortunate as some to gain access to this.


My God, if someone can't access eBay, I feel sorry for them! Why not buy the FM Boxset? And besides, those demos sound pretty similar to the released product.

I think QZ has changed because there is too much division so understandably people clash with others. I would elaborate but I can't help but get the feeling my oppinion isn't valued very highly on the QZ sharemarket (and that's no skin off my nose)

Actually it's declined because there are too many people who know SFA about Queen or anything else and are all too happy to share their ignorance on this board.

@ prophet's song - could you elaborate?

Richard has always wanted to create a space for all interests. The website still has a lot of merits and it's the users who must make the forums a place to enjoy. Unfortunately, the trolls and idiots are always the loudest and the reasonable posters get tired of discussing with them. Years ago it was impossible that a troll called a regular bad names and nobody interfered. Today, it's almost the rule. So, people should not be surprised if the regulars give up on the board when there is no loyalty from the community.


I do not want any google ads here.

We should use a Forum with PHPBB. The Queenzone Forum is in my Opinion a "anonymous" Forum. There are very much people here. We have no Post-Counters and so on.

But yes, its strange here xD

As a visitor of queenzone for 2years and 6 months i have seen changes on the board but isn't that expected?? people move on and then come back pretty normal in my book, i for one have come to respect a few guys on here.

They are john stuart, serry, your valentine and queen archivist why??? because these guys now their stuff when it comes to queen and solo stuff, and the amount of time and dedication that they pursue with great detail must be applauded.

Personally the questions i hate seeing is like for example "what if blah + blah blah seem to fill the board with nonsense, where as a question like queen2 + sheer heart attack rise or retreat gets opinions and thoughts really going.

Just my opinion though and i think a bit of diplomacy is needed especially with the young ones with their questions as they are starting out getting into the band whereas others like myself have been followers for twenty years plus, and they need to be giving some respect which has been lacking some what of late.

One more thing is there any chance we can have a sticky for you tube clips like they do on queenonline it would make all the clips more accessible>

Cheers.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

What most people criticize QZ for are things that have always been the case: inane or repetitive topics, too many teenagers, etc. That's always been an issue on QZ and one that people dealt with fine.

But YV has identified the major difference between the QZ of old and the QZ of today. There are too many angry posters who throw around insults at the drop of a hat. This causes any intelligent person looking for a fun discussion to want to avoid QZ. The other day, in a seemingly quaint thread, one of our resident idiots called someone a "cunt" simply because they had different musical tastes. Years ago, users would not have tolerated this; today, a few spoke out only to be insulted themselves while the idiot continued posting. When QZ is full of angry people who throw out death threats or nasty names, which seem to be a larger proportion of teenagers than others, users leave.

I, myself, visit QZ less than I used to. After all, who willingly visits a site where they might be called a "bitch, "cunt," "worthless," or "cesspool" just because their opinion differs from yours?

there are a lot of decent kids on here,but yes you are right with what you say,one bad apple spoils the batch.i am an old fossil compared to most on here and i don't like the behaviour of one or two of the teenage trolls sometimes but without an authority figure they know they can get away with what they write.
im all for freedom of speech but you have to draw a line somewhere.using the C word or calling someone a F...ING moron is not on in a civilised society and shouldn't be allowed here.

I know it's not a popular solution but there should be many (10+) moderators who would keep this forum clean. Yeah, freedom of speech is nice but I'm sick of various teen / nonsense / irrelevant posts that QueenZone is full of. Useful information in this forum is buried under loads of bullshit.

In some sense the QueenOnline forum is better. And I never thought I would ever say this...

I'm not talking about censorship, I'm talking about deleting nonsense and/or offtopic posts and trying to avoid flame wars and personal attacks.

[But nothing is black or white - thanks to QZ I'm slowly improving my knowledge of English :) Five years ago my English was shit, now it's only so-so and perhaps in five years I will be able to speak properly ;-]
