Hi guys, just dropped by to wish you a Joyous Christmas.
I'm on the Judas Priest Noticeboard now. Anyone who thinks I'm nuts hasnt heard Nostradamus
I was surprised to see how friendly the regulars there are. Yeah, and lotta good discussions on music - not only Priest
We're 35 000 active members there, so it's quite a lively place.
They have an effective way of rooting out imposters: You have to acquire 25 "respect points" before you can post on the regular site; meanwhile you post on a beginner's site, with the standard beginner's stuff: How long have you been a Priest fan ? Fave Priest album; NP; that sorta stuff. Some of the most respected members keep an eye on new members and give'm points if they write reasonable stuff, and you also get a point for becoming a friend of another member; I'm now a friend of nine other members. There's also a lively exchange of pm's among friends.
So you can find me there, under my usual alias
I enjoyed being in the Room for these 2 1/2 years, but as I wrote earlier, it had become too quiet for me, and I've become too metal, I guess.
The Priest board suits me fine
I still have my active LP in the Room, so I come by and edit it several times a week. I use the occasion to browse thru the posts since last in the Room
Edit: I just saw that Jonesy is back. So you guys get a good replacement
Hi Jonesy. You'r probably surprised to see that I'v become such a big Priest fan
The reason is that their Nostradamus totally bowled me over. Within three spins it had catapulted from being completely unknown to me to being my fave album by any group. Amazing !
