    I'm just wondeing Deron, do you know what 'leak' was being talked about? I was under the assumption that the band may have misconstrued those jokes people were pulling about listening to various tracks from the album. Aside from that, the only tracks that really leaked on there were the ones that Roadrunner released, and I was under the impression that we took care of that!

    I'm just still not 100% on why exactly they would decide to close it down.

    People were leaving posts that said they listened to "Beneath the Mire" and "Baying of the Hounds." Do you think it was that? That really sucks.

    It was just the overall discussion of the album and the potential future discussions for when the leaks manage to get out within the next 5-6 weeks. They just did what Mike Portnoy did by shutting it all down so they don't have to worry about it. Opeth.com was just doing what they thought was the right thing. I know Anna and opeth.com hated all the discussions of the new mp3s before they were released. Wasn't the spread of the "The grand conjuration" leak from sirius radio the reason why roadrunner started streaming it? I guess Opeth.com didn't want any full mp3s available before the release of the album.

    Hopefully the forum will be reopened after the GR release and most of the assholes on the forum have moved on to a new band. *fingers crossed*

    People just need to get along. There's quite a few people from that board that just post something personal or insulting against another who disagrees with their opinion. That's kinda immature when people think they're so intelligent and elite that they just have to engage in outrageous slander to feel better about themselves. The drama was interesting at times, but it really was just a waste of time reading all that shit.

    That's true. We were trying to phase that out, but changing a community is not an easy task. I think realistically the only way it could have happened was by ejecting everybody that partook :erk:

    That would have been a lot of people. Maybe even myself on occasion. Sometimes I got angry when someone was rude to me. I haven't in a while though. Besides, the CoB forum is worse than Opeth when it come to rude assholes, that place has an abundance.

    I kind of drifted away from the forum for a couple of months, then when I came back there were 800 new users, crap was "leaking" all over the place and the forum eventually closed...the people at roadrunner are ridiculously stupid if they think they can release a track online and then expect it not to end up on the forums

    Precisely. How do you balance out between those who ocassionally lash back out at people, and those who spend most of their time being detrimental to the forum? And even moreso, how do you ban one of these people without the community starting to shout 'unfair!'.

    It's an annoying situation, but I think what may work is if the moderators were given temporary banning powers.. for instance the ability to ban people for a maximum of one week. When all you can do is delete threads, people tend to not take you as seriously as they should. In a leak situation such as with those mp3s of Ghost of Perdition, it would have made my life MUCH easier if I could simply have forced someone out for the period of the day, instead of having to constantly follow them around and delete all the links to it they post!

    It could also be an interesting 'social experiment' on the forum. When a certain 2 or 3 people are banned for a short time, you're essentially trialing how the forum will operate without them there, and if it works for the better... well then you know that those people are being detrimental to the community.

    But those are just my totalitarian rambles... pay no heed :)

    Hopefully Anna will give you and Samsara more authority (if the forum is to be reopened.) I was growing weary of certain characters on the forum, I know you had to be, also.

    Well...it leaked.

    Visit over here if you want more info/want to talk about it. If this post in inappropriate feel free to delete it. I don't really know where most of the UM Opeth refugees are.

    Yeah...we had alot of posts like Lioness' there. People think they're so great they have to insult others to boost their metal ego.

    Which is funny. For all people say about the Opeth forum, they hardly reflect well on the ones they frequent.

    There were times when this board was worst than the Opeth board. As for now, i wish that the refugees stay here and not in the boards i often post.

    The Children of Bodom board is aweful! I went and checked it out. I dislike CoB quite a bit but thought I'd talk with some fans, nonetheless. They are some America haters over there! They seen I was from the U.S. and started giving me hell. Not that I expect a high amount of manners from die-hard CoB fans, but good grief, they need to chill...

    this board has had its share of morons, let's not pretend otherwise.

    so for the noobs, I have prepared a simple rule of conduct, and you will all be wiser if you follow it.

    here it is.

    read all my posts, digest my wisdom, and conduct yourselves as I do, with thinly veiled lust towards my female board members, disdain towards idiots, and a sarcastic tho witty repartee wielded with a rapier-like quickness.

    oh.....and humility.

    that is all.
