I've given the front page/info page a small facelift. New images have been added, and from now on the community requires a short introductory post from all new members. You should all go take a look!

But here is the important part:


On the community's 1 year anniversary - January 11th - I'm removing everyone who isn't an active member. My definition of "active" is pretty wide, so the only ones who risk being thrown out are the ones who haven't left a single comment in the past 12 months, as well as obvious leeches who show no intent of ever contributing. If you feel that this applies to you, you can avoid this initial clean-out by commenting on this post. Though if you still haven't made any sort of contribution within the next month or so after that, you're out the door.

Just remember: I don't expect everyone to constantly be uploading albums. Commenting is just as important as uploading, so it's perfectly fine if you don't have the means to upload more than once or twice a year - just show us that you're alive every once in a while by commenting on the posts being made. But uploads are what makes this community grow and thrive.

So - you have 9 days from now on to comment here. I'll post reminders throughout the next week (linking to this post), so don't worry if you can't comment right now. And if you get removed by accident or because you somehow missed this post, you're obviously more than welcome to re-join again.

Non-important stuffCollapse )

Those of you who have uploaded anything at all (OR made more than a handful comments in the last year) don't really need to comment here - you know who you are, and so do I. And thank you very much, btw!

In the meantime: Post albums, give recommendations, comment, request stuff, argue, supply additional information to posts, say "thank you", make fun of my hair, whatever. Just have fun, and stay clear of all cheap plastic metal!

your loving moderator.

* Well, after only two weeks in business we're closing in on 70 members and have between 200-300 downloadable albums/demos - well done!

* I wondered if anybody has any requests? Any specific bands or releases you'd like to see here? On a personal note, I can get a hold of just about anything (if I don't already have it), and would gladly help you expand your collection. And I know other members here have amazing collections as well, so I'm guessing we should have all bases pretty well covered when it comes to supplying you with the greatest metal ever!

* I've made a couple more horrible banners (check the first "!banners" tag, as I'll add more to that post whenever I'm bored enough).

Since all respectable communities need annoying banners to put in other communities, I took half an hour out of my busy schedule today (which basically involved enjoying re-runs of "Baywatch") to make these. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon learning how to make those nifty little boxes that display HTML codes. Thus, I present to you:
