Sad
« on: July 15, 2010, 03:56:49 am »

It is really sad how far the Ozzfest forums have fallen. At one time these were the best forums anywhere on the net. I know this won't change anything, but if you would rather the boards be more like the ones in the second half of 2006 give a Hell Yah! I would never want to do the mod thing again, but wouldn't mind seeing people like ZFW and Crozzy modding this forums. If not for any other reason than to keep it free on the damned cigarette, peter pills, and other shit put here by those damned spam-bots. After all, doesn't Ozzy really deserve the best?

When this version of Ozzfest`s website was just launched, discussed with it`s creators was an option they were considering at the time: "re-instating mods from the `06 era".
I had gone down the short list of people who were involved in modding and what their current status was.
AC,...I know you were pretty firm on not wanting to do it again but I put your name in the hat with that understanding.
It was also bantered back and forth over a half dozen E mails or so about getting Crozzy, ZFW, and myself among others to once again mod these forums.
It was at the time planned for Wizard of Ozz to oversee things "for a week or so",.....
And then,...the board started to pick up..new members and vets alike were all posting,...Wizz was running it solo just fine,..Ozzfest approaches and then the board dies into a nothingness flooded with SPAMBOTS as Ozzfest is about to kickoff.
It`s really dead here...I dont come around to post...and HELLZ YEAH!!....AC I agree with ya.
I have openly asked the Wizz about this but he`s probably busy doing some other Ozzfest stuff,....
It`s weird you should bring this up now,...I was thinking that exact same thought yesterday on my drive to work.
It came to mind that I would NEVER EVER let this happen to Ozzy`s board,....he deserves WAY better. Not so much that its Wizard of Ozz`s fault but the whole format and graphics and deadness,...and the bots,...I dont like the bots.
Well....I have kept it inside too long,...thanks for bringing it up AC.
Wish it was like the old days as I`ve said many times,...you were the best AC.
I cant change that nor where we are now.

I know.  Now we just need to get somebody to fix it.  Wiz is only on once per week or so.  And he didn't even upload photos/code the site correctly as you can see on the bands page.

So you guys truly believe that it's the mods or the format of the board that is the problem?   You really don't think that the fact that there's hardly any ozzfest dates has anything to do with this?  The last ozzfest tour was 3 years ago.  That's why the board died.  Who gives a shit about who the mod is or the format of the website.  A few spam posts don't ruin a board.  If there's a lot of activity, nobody will even see those spam posts on the front page

I would love to go back to the old 06 format, this shit sucks.  I lost all my post cred.  I've atleast gotten back to full member status but still most of my friends from the old Ozzfest.com are still gone.

one way to thwart the spambots is to have to enter a captcha every time we post something

also the spam here is reeeeeeeaaaaaally bad. you could solve it by having the admin verify your email before you start posting

Yeah I hate the spam here.  I don't smoke so I don't care about those damn cigarette ads and I don't have erectile dysfunction so I really don't care about cheap viagra lol

When you also have stupid ass kids playing games and dumb fucks around all the time people just get fed up with it all.

Yes this place is nothing but a joke to all.Thank god for other forums with no fucking kid games and dumb asses around 24-7 talking nothing but garbage!
Been around close to day one around here and all the good ones just had enough of the shit and said fuck it all!
Sad indeed!

That over the mountain fucker is a disgrace to one of Ozzy's greatest songs.

At Least I Agree With You On That One! Plus We Need Better Profile Pages!
And Bring Back The Devil Emoticons...Then Ban "OverTheMountain".
That Should Rid Us Of At Least Some Of That St00pid Spam Crap!
