Someone should make a myspace for this site, i see alot of website that have their own myspace page and it helps promote them!!

Yea thats a good idea, i know vietnow (blah) has a myspace, maybe we can like try and top theirs
Theres always facebook too


yeah this forum has much more members then vietnow ( rolleyes.gif ) so the myspace page would be bigger, but damn vietnow have a crazy ass looking profile on myspace, we need some dope ass designers to compete with that!!

yeah usually when a forum goes down for awhile people forget about so your idea about the mass email could defo work.

More people = More posts/topics

Vietnow.. That place is full of homophobes and Ron Paulogists..

If you're looking for civil intelligent discussion, don't look there..

Yea i know what you mean, im not too big of a fan of it either

I don't know what you mean....the Ron Paulogists comment I sort of understand because there's one regular poster that's really into Ron Paul, and a couple more that tentatively support him. There's a couple users that were godawfully loud and dogmatic in their blind defense of the guy, but they're members of the vietnow.org community just as much as Fremon Bryan is of this one. But the homophobes thing????? blink.gif I can't even begin to understand that.

I don't like how this "rivalry" thing is turning out. huh.gif

I've logged alot of time here.. I'm proud that I'm in the first couple hundred or so members.. I've met awesome people here and had alot of good discussions.. As far as I'm concerned this was the ZDLR site.. I loved the way it used to be.. The section with essays was really cool.. The photo section was awesome..

Edit: Freman Bryan's done nothing but spam this site with one copy and pasted article on the same subject.. HUNDREDS of topics.. Nobody probably even reads, and few people even respond to.. He isn't interested in discussion, he cannot argue or hold a position of his own, and the amount of original posts by him supports this. The only position he argues(on the rare occasion) is that he's right, we're all wrong, we've just been duped by Jews and free masons or some shit. For example did you guys know that Jews were really behind the Columbine high school shootings? An ugly dozen copy and pasted topics about this really cracked an egg of knowledge on me. Who knew? rolleyes.gif Did you know that there are real Jedis too? Just like in Star Wars? That movie Dune? Yeah that really bad science fiction movie with Sting and the guy from Twin Peaks in it.. That shit is real too... So real that you guys should all go to Jah Truth and wake up!, or better yet, ZDLR.net, because now virtually all the crazy shit there is conveniently here for you to read.

If you guys wanna have a discussion or let your topic breath, sorry, you'll have to have it in the back.

I'm sorry! I'm high and rambling.. Needed to say that.

What I'm trying to say is this guy's as bad as whoever launched all these bots to spam porn and weird pills here.

There's something really really wierd about him... And Mochachino, I'll dig up the topic where he and her had some wierd wierd fight.

I'm pretty sure this Mochachino person has multiple accounts.

I agree about Freman. I had to set a lot of his topics to invisible in my forums. I think it's a valid concern considering that a lot of what he posts is anti-Semitic in nature. I am not sure if he is the same person as that other Mochachino or whatever.

Also, I am unaware of the rivalry between this site and the other site, but I feel it is largely imagined.

Anyway, glad to see Cosmic taking care of the bots. Some renovations for this site will definitely bring it back.

*dusts off cobwebs*


Damn, I haven't been here in almost exactly one year. After reading this thread, I can understand why I left. Maybe one day you'll see that one of the reasons you could be hurting for business is that you have a hierarchy in how you organize things. Nobody likes a snob, especially one that you can't even look in the eye.

Perhaps Vietnow is a little silly and doesn't make a lot of sense to "REAL FANS" like many on this board, but I think it gives the place Character. I love the weird conversations we make out of the band. I love Tom's Cubes and Glitter Zashy. It makes no fucking sense and it's a good stress reliever.

And as far as the Ron Paul people go, there are only a couple and I just ignore them for the most part. The Homophobe thing doesn't hold up for me at all, because I don't see anyone there who hates gays in the least. The only thing that annoys me about Vietnow is how plagued with stoners it is (being that I'm SxE it is a bit tiring when they tell me to go have a joint), but whatever.

Here's a tip: Try actually being NICE to new posters here every once in a while. Maybe member #15,268 doesn't matter much to you, but he still counts and could maybe teach you a thing or two. I always liked Cosmic and it's sad that he's not here anymore. I made some great friends here all and all, but I wasn't comfortable posting here anymore mainly because of Rev and Casbah. Neither of you liked my "teenie" antics and I knew it. That's cool and all, but I don't appreciate being harassed and talked down to, especially by people who seem to not be able to keep their own shit together, or their own site for that matter.


There's my opinion straight-up, and I'm not going to reply back to it, simply because arguing would only make me look on your level. To all the friends I had or still have here, thanks, but to everyone else...don't run down my neck of the woods while you're still a registered member there. It doesn't look too cute.



Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz Snuggle Snuggle,

Dorotea

'S funny how this whole 'rivalry' thing between sites started. When vietnow.org started, there wasn't a single solitary person on this forum who came out and said, "hey, we need to try and beat these new guys, they look like competition!". Not one. Meanwhile, the motto of that forum from day one has been "Here we are, we're Vietnow and we gonna run this shit, especially on ZDLR.net!"

Don't think anybody really cares Dorotea. Sorry to disappoint. smile.gif



--------------------
I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us, you're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end, I came here to tell you how this is going to begin. Now, I'm going to hang up this phone, and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world...where anything is possible.
Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

From day one to day 10 maybe. We realized it was damaging to both sites. I thought that we might have some friendly competition to help both sites and get more Rage fans involved in both our communities, but soon I realized that it would turn ugly for whatever reason. Same with everyone else at vietnow.org. Since then, we've tried to make peace, but then you call us uncivil, homophobes (still haven't gotten an answer on why), Ron Paulogists, etc. We never tried to "run" anything here. It was just one immature guy who we have long since kicked out for that very reason that would "attack" this board. Every last one of us called him out on it and he left.

I know Dorotea and kort have a history here, but no one else has a part in it. No one else (save that one immature member who we kicked out) has any problem with you guys. I joined the whole Rage fansite thing late in the game, contributed and posted here a bit, and realized that the community was too well established for me to really be a part of it. That's why I post over there now, because I could start fresh with a new community, not because I have anything against you guys. Not a single ill word has been spoken about ZDLR.net until Casbah called us homophobes and Ron Paulogists for no reason.

I realize you guys had some kind of major dispute with two of our established members, but no one else has any kind of spite towards ZDLR.net.
