WATMM is dying

I shall replace joyrex with usagi

As my idm dad

I haven't started posting MegaLOLs in the dank memes thread though (yet). that, if anything, is the final horseman of the apocalypse for this place, the downward arc of the executioner's axe. wonder if I can kidnap and enslave prdct for my lifetime free supply, that's all I need.

btw big lol @ anyone insisting this isn't about the music or that musical diversity is something to look at sideways in the land of pure idems. taking that position is so alien to me I don't even know how to begin having a conversation about it, nor do I really want to. like, why are you even here? what reason is there for this forum to thrive if not for those reasons? if I wanted to watch grown adults act out their highschool clique fantasies I'd... I dunno, come read WATMM once in a blue moon, I guess.

also any WATMM chat situation, whether it's some incarnation of CHATMM or Discord or whatever, eventually degenerates into a cancerous edgelord racist/sexist echo-chamber shithole, because IDM white boys can't help themselves when they think people aren't watching. prove me wrong.

WATMM RADIO :nyan:

 

Might still be called that, but basically it will be comprised (initially) of EKT tracks submitted by the community!

Glad to know the idea is still alive and possible

That too required the forum upgrade - what's great is it has an integrated player that doesn't reload as you navigate around the site!

The other part is getting the Wasabi storage set up - 1TB should be sufficient for all our Downloads and EKT content to come...

Did you change the default fonts a minute ago. Is this Lucida? (not saying good or bad. just surprised the page was in different font all of a sudden)

Yeah, went from Roboto to Open Sans - I wanted Maven Pro, but can't be arsed to put it into the stylesheets...

I think it's a bit more readable... does anyone else?

Readability feels about the same, seems to waste more space on mobile compared to the previous font though.

Yeah, it is a bit wider overall - I think the font size (on mobile) needs adjusting though regardless

I like the change. Not sure it's better. It's an "airy" font. Takes more space. Which is fine in large spaces. But not in tiny spaces like below the avatar. Looking at Usagi's account info below his avatar, the text turns into spaghetti. So it's a difficult one, imo.

I'm still up for this, and no longer have other radio commitments so...

Well, tbh his "interests" is pretty long... should we be showing Interests on forum pages? Wouldn't that be a Members page kinda thing?

I like the font, noticed immediately when it changed. Easy to read & slick

Well, I like the new font better in the context of the wide areas. In the slimmer text boxes like the avatar section, I'd rather have a compact font. Regardless of whether people have loads of interests or not. This font needs to be able to breathe, to do its thing. Doesn't really happen in those restricted areas, imo.

The new font does have a huge impact on the look and feel. And in a lot of places for the better. It's your call though.

let's stop with the dehumanizing language okay. insinuating that "white boys" (ok racist) are up to no good only when "people" aren't watching. so i guess whites aren't people anymore? for this equality and diversity thing to work correctly, sadly it has to go both ways and yes I know that is painful and shitty to hear for some folks.

........The biggest issue with even temporary subforums for artists or labels is just like our Featured Artists, they can go dormant from time to time or permanently, and then you're left with exactly what you're citing the existing subforums for. The Music Discussion subforum was meant to fill that need of discussing other artists/labels, so I'm not sure if you're suggesting compartmentalizing it further or what...

I

I'm surprised you say it's still very much a boy's club here - I haven't seen (nor have I had to issue any warnings regarding) 

I’ve made my ideas pretty clear. Just keep on with the same old if you want to. I’ll be holding my breath waiting on the obviously needed discography section to pop up. ?

Also yes there are no tits anymore. 98% males, but it’s not a boy’s club! ?

Gotta say, the amount of security measures you have to go through to create an account seems extreme, was this site regularly attacked by Russian trolls in the past or something?
