Are there any actual discussion threads going on any more or is it just full of trawlers posting about how awesome their mates band is.. or street teamers annoying the fuck out of everyone?

right now i havent got the time to have a look through every page and i dont have the power to delete pointless threads..

once this has been answered feel free to delete this thread unless we can get a hate of street teamers thing going

Do you use the latest updates tab? That's the easiest way to see what's going on.

Also the best thing would be to force the street teamers into the Hot Deals area (or rename it) and slap anyone else on the wrist.

I agree it's a problem. And like Cynic said - use the latest tab. I had something lined up to address this but had to shelve it when I realized there were problems. But I plan to get it reworked and crack down on the pointless promotion. The problem is that some people think of "message boards" like the physical type: post your crap and leave it there for all to see. This is intended to be a forum for discussion, however, not a message board.

Yea,it does suck having to wade through endless "check out my latest thrash,death,black,etc band threads. This crap clogs up actual discussion,chatting,i will agree! New rules for these upstart bands are in order i think. Post in a specific spot. Im all for hearing new stuff,but damn,everyone has a new band they want to promote it seems.
